The monarch returned to London to continue his treatment

King Charles “looks well” and wants the world to know, according to GB News Royal Correspondent Cameron Walker.

The monarch returned to London to continue his treatment for cancer and was spotted with Queen Camilla as he made his way to Clarence House.

It was announced last week that the head of state has a “form of cancer” and he broke his silence at the weekend in a statement praising “all those organisations which support cancer patients”.

Speaking to Martin Daubney, Cameron Walker said the King deliberately sought to ensure his wellness was made clear to the public.

“He was pictured leaving Clarence House with his private secretary”, said Walker.

“You can see his Bentley has massive windows. King Charles clearly wants to be seen and wants to get that message out there.

“Buckingham Palace are not going to provide a running commentary about the King’s health or the treatment he’s receiving, but I think we can take comfort in the fact he looks pretty well considering the fact he’s got a cancer diagnosis.

“He’s well enough to be photographed and looks relatively happy.”

Charles has postponed all public-facing duties, but continues with behind-the-scenes work on his red boxes of state papers.

Camilla has been carrying out her royal diary of engagements and last week said her husband was doing “extremely well under the circumstances”.

Her latest engagement saw her indulging her love of art with a trip to Kindred Studios in west London.

She met an eclectic mix of painters, sculptors and modern artists after her daughter, Laura Lopes, told her about the “fantastic” studios.

As she walked around, the Queen told one artist: “It was Laura who told me about this, she said it was so fantastic -‘You’ve got to have a look’.”

Camilla is expected to remain in London because she is hosting a reception to mark the 100th anniversary of the Poppy Factory on Thursday.

Royals like Camilla and Prince William have stepped up in the absence of Charles and Princess Kate, who recently underwent planned abdominal surgery.
