King Charles' first message after being diagnosed with cancer
King Charles has spoken for the first time since Buckingham Palace announced his cancer diagnosis.
On the 50th anniversary of Grenada's Independence, the monarch sent the country his heartiest congratulations. Charles said the place holds special memories for him after visiting it five years ago with Queen Camilla.
"Over these past five decades, I have watched with deep admiration as you have built your nation and established Grenada's special place in the world and as an essential member of our Commonwealth family. Together, you have established Grenada as an example of democracy, human rights and the rule of law. Together, you have faced the most critical challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss, offering the world an example of leadership, resilience and innovation," King Charles III's message reads.
Charles is expected to resume his weekly meetings with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak within two weeks. Every week, he meets privately with him to discuss matters of state.
