King Charles III has been diagnosed with a form of cancer and has begun treatment. 

This comes just a week after he was discharged from hospital for prostate surgery. 

During his recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, "a separate issue of concern was noted". 

The type of cancer has not been revealed and the King began "regular treatments" on Monday (Feb 5). 

He had been advised by doctors to postpone public duties. 

Prince Harry has spoken with King Charles about his cancer diagnosis and will travel to the United Kingdom to see him in the coming days. 

The reports didn't mention whether or not Meghan Markle or their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, will accompany him.
