King Charles Issues Easter Message On Kindness

King Charles III’s heartfelt message on Thursday emphasized the importance of kindness and friendship during challenging times. This comes after both he and Kate, the Princess of Wales, received the devastating diagnosis of cancer.

During a recorded message captured in mid-March at Buckingham Palace before the Easter holiday, Charles emphasized the importance of Jesus as a role model for serving and caring for one another.

In February, Buckingham Palace announced Charles, 75, had been diagnosed with cancer. The cancer was discovered during a prostate procedure.

Officials have mentioned that Sunday’s Easter event will be more intimate than previous ones, with the royal family present at St. George’s Chapel. Officials have stated that Charles is working behind closed doors despite not making any public appearances.

Buckingham Palace stated that the decision to reveal his diagnosis was made to avoid speculation and to potentially provide some insight for those worldwide who are dealing with cancer.

Last week, Kate, who is 42 years old, shared the news of her cancer diagnosis amidst a whirlwind of media attention due to her recent absence from public events. In January, she had abdominal surgery, and unfortunately, cancer was discovered.

She revealed she is in the early stages of chemotherapy.

Queen Camilla graciously distributed gifts of “Maundy Money” for herself and King Charles, continuing a time-honored tradition that dates back to 600 A.D.

The special coins are given to individuals who have shown exceptional dedication to their communities through Christian service. The number of recipients is directly tied to the monarch’s age.

Seventy-five men and 75 women were chosen to receive a gift as a token of appreciation for their valuable contributions to the community this year. In his message, King Charles praised the individuals for their exceptional acts of kindness, willingness to go above and beyond, and dedication to serving others in their communities.
