While the unidentified condition is being treated, the British monarch issued a statement on Saturday expressing his “heartfelt thanks” for all of the expressions of support he has received over the past week. The statement was released while he is undergoing treatment for the condition.
“As all those who have been affected by cancer will know, such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement,” he added in his statement. “It is the little things that make the biggest difference.”
