King Charles may refuse cancer treatment as he “does not believe in chemotherapy”, a former BBC journalist has claimed.
It comes after it was revealed yesterday that King Charles has been diagnosed with a “form of cancer”
Speaking to Nigel Farage on GB News Tom Bower explained: “I’m speculating but the King is a promoter of alternative medicine.
“He would not be one for chemotherapy. He’s always argued against it.
“He’s a great believer in natural herbs and potions and things like that.
“So my guess is that at the moment he’s taking advice from a man called Michael Dixon, who he’s championed for many years, has headed his own natural alternative medicinal institute discredited by many people.
“The King is a great believer in it. Last night, I was very surprised that people kept on saying that he’s going to have chemotherapy or radiation and the rest of it.
“He doesn’t believe in it. It’s a risk. I think going to Sandringham is where he wants to take these alternative medicines. to broadcast it. And the same with the King.

He added: “I’m just worried the alternative medicine won’t provide the cure which conventional medicine would.”
Yesterday, it was revealed that King Charles has been diagnosed with cancer but no further details about his condition have been announced.
A Palace source said: “He’s on his usual good form in every way, just a little frustrated that his condition has affected not just his plans but impacted on others.”
He has been in regular contact with Prince William, while Prince Harry flew back to Britain to see his father for 45 minutes today.
The King is said to have been urged to “slow down” by those close to him, including the Queen. It is understood the treatment will be precise and highly specialised.
The side effects are reported to be limited. King Charles’s diagnosis was also spotted at an early stage.
