King Charles III of the United Kingdom held his first official meeting at Buckingham Palace with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak after the news of His Majesty's cancer. The King is expected to hold these meetings on a weekly basis.

Although Charles III canceled any public events after the diagnosis was announced, the Privy Council meeting with the Prime Minister is a priority for him despite his illness, as he had previously stated.

"It is wonderful to see you looking so well," Sunak said. The king joked back, saying that "it was the mirrors that did it."

During the conversation, the Prime Minister verbally supported Charles III in his fight against the disease, and the latter recalled the letters sent by his fans wishing him a speedy recovery. I received so many wonderful messages and cards. Most of the time it brought me to tears," he said.

The King meets weekly with the Prime Minister to discuss government issues. By law, His Majesty is obliged to be neutral in politics, but he has the right to "advise and caution" any of his ministers in case of any issues and problems, which Charles III actively uses.
