King Charles urged to rest like Kate amid cancer treatment




King Charles has been urged to follow the lead of Princess Kate as the pair both continue treatment for cancer.

The royal family members announced their diagnoses earlier this year, just weeks apart.

Since then, with Kate ducking out of the spotlight entirely, the King had been taking a more relaxed approached to royal duties. However, in recent weeks, the monarch has appeared to be trying to insert himself back into his usual role.

And, after Camilla recently admitted her husband “won’t do what he is told”, Charles is being urged to take it slowly, much like his daughter-in-law.

King Charles’ cancer recovery: Time to slow down?

King Charles’ initial break from royal duties was short lived, as he quickly returned to appearing at events, including a Buckingham Palace garden party and an appearance at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The monarch has since taken a front-facing role at the commemorations of the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Landings and made a high-profile speech.

Another high-profile event, the Trooping The Colour ceremony, is just around the corner for the King. King Charles will be expected to inspect soldiers from the comfort of a carriage. The event marks the official birthday of the British sovereign.

There is support for the Princess of Wales and the approach she’s taken.

However, it appears that a large percentage of people are eager for the King to slow down. The Royal Record podcast host Svar Nanan-Sen discussed a recent poll of GB News viewers, who share these thoughts.

Svar explained: “I asked our GB News members if King Charles should slow down after Camilla’s health update. 74% [of those polled] voted yes, Charles should slow down. 21% voted no and 5% said they didn’t know. So three-quarters of our members would like to see the King take on fewer engagements during this period, and prioritise his health.”

‘Genuine concern’

He continued: “Something that I think we can also look at off the back of this poll is that there is support for the Princess of Wales and the approach she’s taken. We haven’t seen her conduct any royal engagements since December 2023. She said during her cancer announcement that she was going to prioritise her health. Maybe our viewers would like to see Charles take a similar approach.”

Royal correspondent Cameron Walker chimed in with his thoughts. He said: “I suppose the difference between the King and the Princess of Wales is the speculation and the horrible conspiracy theories online are all targeting the Princess of Wales rather than the King.

“I think it shows that there is genuine concern for our monarch. He’s in his seventies. We know he’s undergoing cancer treatment. His various staff members, and of course the Queen, have alluded to the fact that he is a bit of a workaholic. He doesn’t like sitting still.”

It comes after Queen Camilla made a comment about her husband’s health at her Queen’s Reading Room Festival. She reportedly told Jack Reacher author, Lee Child, that King Charles is “doing fine”. She also quipped that he “won’t do what he is told”.

Emmerdale stars Lewis Cope and Brahmdeo to leave soap




Recently on Emmerdale, Nicky was thrown into a major storyline as Ethan Anderson led him to be put in a coma following a drink driving accident.

Nicky awoke from the coma but it turned out that it was Ethan’s time that was cut short.

Weeks after Ethan’s death, The Sun has now reported that Nicky and Suni are set to also leave the soap as actors Lewis Cope and Brahmdeo Shannon Ramana film their final scenes.

Emmerdale stars Lewis Cope and Brahmdeo Shannon Ramana quit

Over in the Dales, Ethan Anderson recently met his maker after collapsing in his house weeks after he put Nicky in a coma due to drink driving.

With Nicky finding out that Ruby was responsible for Ethan’s hit and run, he’s started pulling away from his family.

Next week will see Nicky suggest moving away from the Dales with Suni as he cuts ties with Ruby and Caleb.

These scenes will make way for both Nicky and Suni’s departure from the soap, reports claim.

A source informed The Sun that Lewis and Brahmdeo have already filmed their final scenes which will air this summer, revealing: “It’s not going to go unnoticed that three of the village’s gay characters have been written out within a matter of weeks of each other.

“The optics aren’t good especially when it’s pride month.

“It’s very unusual for three actors with the same character profile to leave at the same time.”

Emmerdale fans blast soap over three LGBTQ+ character exits

With reports circulating over the exit of two more LGBTQ+ characters just weeks after Ethan Anderson’s death, fans have now taken to social media to share their anger – especially considering it’s pride month.

One fan complained: “Wow so now two more gay characters leaving Emmerdale. Nicky & Suni unfortunately are not a priority for the writers. Ethan got killed off last month. June is Pride Month and Emmerdale producers clearly don’t know what to do with gay, male characters. They get treated like [bleep.]”

Another viewer added: “Ethan Dead, Matty in prison and Nicky and Suni are about to do one and all in Pride month too! Right that’s it…”

A third person shared: “Supposedly Nicky and Suni are leaving this month and with Ethan being killed off it means 3 gay characters are being axed and during pride month. The [bleep] betrayal!”

Emmerdale have been contacted for comment.

However, given Belle’s clear discomfort at the situation, surely Wendy must have suspected that something might be amiss.

Fans have predicted that Wendy will be the one to help take Tom down.

Who was Wendy married to on Emmerdale?

As fans have pointed out, nurse Wendy is no stranger to abusive marriages. Ex-husband Ross Posner was also physically violent towards Wendy, showing up in the village to torment her after they separated.
