Camilla's comments comes four days after Buckingham Palace announced the monarch's cancer diagnosis.

They said it had been found as he received treatment for an enlarged prostate.

The Palace did not confirm which cancer Charles has, nor which treatment he is undergoing, but confirmed it is not prostate.

It comes a day after Prince William publicly addressed his father's cancer diagnosis for the first time.

"We really appreciate everyone's kind messages. Thank you," William told a gala held in the capital city for the London Ambulance Service.

"It's fair to say the past few weeks have had a rather 'medical' focus. So I thought I'd come to an air ambulance function to get away from it all!" he said.
