Charles III appeared on Sunday morning (31) to attend a traditional Easter Mass at St George's Chapel, his most important public appearance since announcing he had cancer two months ago.

The 75-year-old monarch smiled and waved to many as he got out of the car with his wife Queen Camilla in front of the religious shrine, 40 kilometers west of London.

The ceremony comes more than a week after Princess Kate, the wife of heir to the throne Prince William, announced that she too had been diagnosed with cancer.

Unlike other members of the royal family, the couple and their children do not have children in order to avoid exposing them to the press.

In early February, Buckingham Palace announced that the monarch had been diagnosed with cancer, diagnosed and treated during prostate surgery a few days earlier.

Since then, Charles III has canceled all official public engagements, but continues to perform some official duties and attend some meetings, such as his meetings with the Prime Minister.

On March 22, the Princess of Wales announced that she had been diagnosed with cancer, the type of which was not disclosed, and that she had begun preventive chemotherapy treatment.

The disease was diagnosed after abdominal surgery in January.
