Hey King Charles III has been diagnosed with cancer, Buckingham Palace announced on Monday, February 5, and soon there was room for the British press to recall the health problems the king had already faced.
Below you can find some of the situations that Carlos has faced over the past few years, as reported by Sky News.
Carlos III played polo for several years, and in 1980 he fell from a horse and suffered an injury. He received six stitches and was left with a five-centimeter scar on his left cheek.
In this decade, he was struck in the throat by a horse while practicing the sport in question, leaving him without a voice for 10 days.
In 1998, while skiing in Klosters, on one of the most dangerous slopes in Europe, he survived an avalanche that killed one of his best friends, Hugh Lindsay, a former attendant of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
In the same year, Carlos underwent surgery on his right knee and also broke a rib after falling from a horse.
In 1990, Carlos III broke his arm in two places during a polo match and spent three nights in Cirencester Memorial Hospital, in Gloucestershire. Three months later he underwent surgery again, as one of the fractures had not healed as expected.
In January 2001, he fractured his shoulder after falling from a horse.
Two years later, in 2003, he underwent surgery for a hernia.
In 2008, he underwent surgery on his nose, where a non-cancerous mole was removed.
In March of that year, when he was 71, he contracted Covid-19. At that time, vaccines were not yet in circulation. He was showing mild symptoms, such as losing his sense of smell and taste, and was infected with the new infection in February 2022, after being vaccinated with three doses.
In January this year, he was taken to hospital to undergo surgery for a prostate problem. Thanks to this intervention, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace, the cancer that the king suffers from was discovered.
