The Queen has stated that King Charles is managing “very well given the circumstances” following the beginning of his cancer treatment.
On Thursday, Camilla departed from Charles at Sandringham to attend her first official royal event after the palace disclosed the King’s cancer diagnosis earlier this week.
Charles has been in Norfolk since his diagnosis, but he had a brief visit from his son Prince Harry at Clarence House on Monday.
Camilla thanked the medical team at Wiltshire Air Ambulance during her visit to Salisbury Cathedral, expressing that her husband was deeply moved by the overwhelming support he has received.
Paramedic Ben Abbott told her: “I do hope His Majesty is doing well, Ma’am. We’re all really sad to hear the news.”
She responded: “Despite the circumstances, he is doing exceptionally well.”
“He is deeply moved by the numerous letters and messages he has received from people all over – it’s incredibly heartwarming.”
The Queen and the Prince of Wales are getting ready to handle additional duties as the King has reduced his public appearances to focus on treatment for the illness.

Last week, the patient, who is 75 years old, received treatment for an enlarged prostate at the hospital. Afterward, they were diagnosed with a form of cancer that has not been disclosed. The enlarged prostate and the cancer diagnosis are not related.
Earlier this week, he received his initial treatment for the illness.
Camilla owns a residence in Lacock, located in Wiltshire. During her conversation with the air ambulance medical staff, she discussed their job duties.
Abbott mentioned that he informed someone about their tradition of waving when they pass over Lacock, to which she responded that she always waves back.

During a gala dinner, William expressed his gratitude to those who sent well wishes to his wife, Kate, as she recuperated from her surgery. He thanked the attendees, saying, “It means a lot to all of us.”
It is anticipated that the Princess of Wales will not resume her public duties until April.
It is understood that weekly meetings between the King and Rishi Sunak will resume in person in two weeks after Charles’s diagnosis.
