Royal biographer Ingrid Seward says King Charles ‘wouldn’t be as strong’ if he didn’t have Queen Camilla supporting him.
Speaking to GB News Seward said: “The King is very positive, and he’s always been very wary about illness and he’s not one of those people that dwells on illness. He just pushes it aside, and I think he’s being incredibly brave, but also I think he’s very buoyed up by the support and the messages that he’s received from the general public.
“I think he’s rather pleased that by actually telling us all what’s going on, he’s brought more awareness to this problem that so many people suffer from various forms of cancer.”
Discussing the Monarch’s return to duties including meetings with the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak from the 21st February, Seward added: “I think he feels he’s got to keep that up. So, public appearances are a must and he’s the King, he’s got to be seen.
“I think that’s very encouraging and that he refuses to give in to fatigue because most people that have cancer treatment do suffer from fatigue, if nothing else. He just won’t give into it.
“It just shows you what a strong character he is. And of course, he’s got this immense support from his wife, who’s supported him throughout so many years. I just don’t think without her he’d be nearly as strong as this.
“I’m sure that Queen Camilla will see to it that she will make him rest. I don’t think he’ll get away with just creeping back into his study and switching the lights on. I think she will make sure he rests because he needs to rest in order to recover.”
