THE Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod has sent its best wishes to King Charles III after he was diagnosed with a form of cancer.

The Eisteddfod’s Chair, Professor Chris Adams, has written to Buckingham Palace with a message of support to the King on behalf of the festival.

Chris said, "King Charles III has been a huge supporter of our peace festival in Llangollen. 

"As the Prince of Wales he was our patron for 26 years from 1996. 

"He has visited Llangollen numerous times, and championed the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize application. 

"We look forward to welcoming him again upon his recovery.

"We wish him, Queen Camilla and the Royal Family well as he recovers."

King Charles will undergo regular cancer treatments after being diagnosed with a form of cancer.

The news was confirmed by Buckingham Palace on Monday, sharing that the King would postpone public duties but "remains wholly positive about his treatment."

The King's cancer diagnosis follows his recent hospital treatment for an enlarged prostate, although the palace says he does not have prostate cancer.

Buckingham Palace shared in a statement: "His Majesty’s condition is benign, and he will attend hospital next week for a corrective procedure.

"The King’s public engagements will be postponed for a short period of recuperation.”
