Walsall Mayor wishes King Charles a swift recovery

Walsall’s Mayor has issued a public statement wishing King Charles a “swift and full recovery” following news that he was diagnosed with cancer early this week.

Buckingham Palace confirmed the diagnosis on 6 February stating that the King remains positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.

“It is with great sadness that I heard the news and I commend him for being so open about his recent cancer diagnosis. I’m sure this will help promote greater public understanding for all those who are affected by cancer,” said Councillor Chris Towe.

“On behalf of Walsall Council and our residents, I extend all our best wishes to the King. Our thoughts are with his family at such a worrying time. Wishing you a speedy recovery Your Majesty.”
