King Charles was forced to sit apart from Royal Family at Easter service for heartbreaking reason

To the delight of the people of Britain, King Charles made a public appearance at St. George’s Chapel this weekend for the traditional Easter service.

Before they entered the chapel, King Charles and Queen Camilla took their time to greet the gathered crowd and shake hands with some of them.

This was the monarch’s first public appearance since his cancer diagnosis some two months ago. So far, what is made known to the public is that King Charles is receiving weekly treatments in London, but not much is known of the form of cancer he’s battling or the stage the disease is in. However, seeing him in public and among his people is definitely a positive sign that gives many hope that everything would turn out for the best for him.

With the fuss surrounding Kate Middleton following her surgery and all the rumors and speculations that arouse regarding her health and her whereabouts which were finally put a stop to after her public video in which she revealed she was diagnosed with a form of cancer, Charles’ health what somewhat flown under the radar.

The Palace stated that he spends his time between treatments at the royal estate in Sandringham.

This past weekend, the King appeared alongside fellow Royal Family members and one of the biggest talking points was arguably the seating arrangement.

Namely, Charles was seated apart from the rest of the royals once within the chapel and it had nothing to do with any royal traditions.

But this wasn’t the only change people noticed. The Royal Family’s Easter service was a significantly scaled back affair this year with many of the members missing, including Kate, William, and their three children.

Charles and Camilla didn’t arrive in a joint walk with the rest of the royals as per tradition, but their arrived by car. Further, the traditional lunch hosted by the King after the service was not part of the schedule.


It has been reported that the sad reason the King was seated alone was to ensure safety for him amidst his battle with cancer. This was also the reason why the number of royals in attendance was limited as experts advised it as a form of avoiding the risk of infections.

People of Britain were quick to post comments of good wishes for the King under the Instagram post of his visit of St. George’s Chapel.

God save the King!” and “In my prayers,” some of the comments read.

There have also been those who raised their concerns for the King’s safety and health as he shook hands with the crowd.

He should watch or be isolated away from the people so he doesn’t get sick,” one person wrote.

So should he have gone and shaken hands with loads of strangers…” another pondered.

Bet he was not meant to do this walkabout and shake hands. His doctors will not be pleased,” a third added.
