The apparition came a day later he thanked for the messages of support he had received from the public. In a statement, the monarch said such thoughts are “the greatest comfort and encouragement.”

“It is equally encouraging to hear how sharing my own diagnosis has helped to promote public understanding and shine a light on the work of all those organizations supporting cancer patients and their families in the UK and the support the rest of the world,” he said in a statement.

Charles also returned to the public eye last month during the Easter Sunday service in Windsor.
