King Charles is seen driving near Sandringham as he continues his treatment for cancer while Camilla meets Poppy Factory president to mark charity’s 100th anniversary


King Charles has been seen driving around near Sandringham as he continues treatment following his cancer diagnosis. 

The monarch, 75, was pictured behind the wheel of his Audi SUV today, wearing a beige coat and a white shirt.

Yesterday, Charles was seen waving as he headed back to his estate in Norfolk following 24 hours in London for more cancer treatment. 

He landed at Clarendon House in the royal helicopter after spending a week at his Sandringham estate resting, following the shock announcement. 

He broke his silence last week in a letter published by Sandringham House, where he said he was ‘heartened’ to hear his experience is inspiring others up and down the country to get themselves checked.

The letter, signed by Charles R, reads: ‘I would like to express my most heartfelt thanks for the many messages of support and good wishes I have received in recent days. 

‘As all those who have been affected by cancer will know, such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement. 

‘It is equally heartening to hear how sharing my own diagnosis has helped promote public understanding and shine a light on the work of all those organisations which support cancer patients and their families across the UK and wider world. 

‘My lifelong admiration for their tireless care and dedication is all the greater as a result of my own personal experience.’

Buckingham Palace confirmed the King, who only acceded to the throne 17 months ago, does not have prostate cancer, saying only that he has a ‘form of cancer’.

He was diagnosed after a ‘separate issue of concern was noted’ and was investigated while he was being treated for his benign enlarged prostate.

His wife, Queen Camilla, continued her busy week of engagements today as she met with Poppy makers at Clarence House today.

The royal, 76, who has kept busy as her husband King Charles is treated for cancer, met with the President of The Poppy Factory Surgeon Rear Admiral Lionel Jarvis.

Rear Admiral Jarvis gifted Camilla a wreath of poppies for the occasion. Later, Her Majesty cut a cake with a sword – like her late mother-in-law once did.

The Queen has also today met with those who have seen their lives changed by civilian employment with help from The Poppy Factory.

Last night, the Queen witnessed performances by Dame Judi Dench, Gary Oldman and Robert Lindsay at a star-studded event celebrating the work of William Shakespeare.

Camilla was greeted on her arrival at London‘s Grosvenor House Hotel by a host of actors who have played Hamlet including Brian Cox, Jeremy Irons and David Mitchell.

She was then received by a dozen dames, including Dame Twiggy Lawson, Dame Vanessa Redgrave and Baroness Floella Benjamin.

On Valentine’s Day, Camilla was given two matching jumpers with a heart on them as a gift by event host Gyles Brandreth, who said he hoped they would keep the King and Queen ‘warm on those cold winter nights’.

This comes as Camilla’s friend and British journalist Petronella Wyatt told the Telegraph that Prince Harry did not want to be in the same room as Camilla during his short trip to England.    

‘Harry, I hear, preferred not to be in the same room with his stepmother when he spoke to the King about his cancer diagnosis,’ she wrote for the outlet. 

The Duke of Sussex made a flying visit to London from California last week to see his father for 30 minutes following the monarch’s surprise cancer disclosure.
