UK’s King Charles III Makes First Public Appearance Amid Death Rumors

In a notable public appearance, King Charles III of the United Kingdom hosted Korean War veterans at Buckingham Palace, marking his first engagement since rumors of his death circulated online.

The royal family confirmed the monarch’s presence in a social media post, stating, “This morning, the King met veterans of the Korean War at Buckingham Palace to mark 70 years since the signing of the armistice which ended the conflict.”

Amid widespread speculation, the UK embassy in Russia was compelled to issue a statement on Monday, refuting claims of the 75-year-old monarch’s demise due to cancer. The embassy clarified, “Reports about the death of King Charles are FAKE.”

Earlier in February, Buckingham Palace had disclosed that King Charles III had been diagnosed with cancer, without specifying the type or stage. Consequently, the monarch had temporarily scaled back public engagements to undergo “regular treatments.”
