LONDON (AP) — King Charles III has been diagnosed with a form of cancer and has begun treatment, Buckingham Palace says. The palace says the cancer is not related to the king’s recent treatment for a benign prostate condition. It did not say what form of cancer the 75-year-old monarch has. It said Charles “remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.”
