King Charles ‘very unwell’ but ‘determined’ to win cancer battle as Palace reportedly begins planning monarch’s funeral

Canberra, Australia

While multiple sources have said King Charles is optimistic about his health, it has been claimed the monarch’s condition is dire and funeral plans are underway.

A source has claimed Buckingham Palace has actively been preparing for King Charles’ funeral amid bombshell allegations the monarch’s health is rapidly deteriorating.

Buckingham Palace announced in February King Charles had been diagnosed with cancer after he underwent a corrective procedure for an enlarged prostate at the London Clinic, catapulting royal fans into hysteria.

The 75-year-old monarch has since stepped away from the public eye and royal engagements while undergoing cancer treatment.

Multiple sources have now told the The Daily Beast that while the monarch is determined to beat cancer he is facing a “declining health”.

“Everyone is staying optimistic, but he is really very unwell,” a person claiming to be an old friend of the royal family told the outlet.

“Of course, he is determined to beat it and they are throwing everything at it.”

Behind the scenes, Charles’ seemingly poor health has promoted Buckingham Palace officials to regularly update a several-hundred-page document outlining the monarch’s royal funeral plans.

Royal aides have dusted off the extremely detailed plan dubbed “Operation Menai Bridge” – named after the suspension bridge connecting the island of Anglesey with the Welsh mainland.

“The plans have been dusted off and are actively being kept up to date,” a former royal told theDaily Beast.

“It’s no more than what you would expect given the king has been diagnosed with cancer.”

Military officials confirmed Operation Menai Bridge was being repeatedly updated but emphasised “planning for the worst” was “what the military do” given the grand scale of the monarch’s impending funeral.

“Of course they are looking at every aspect of Menai Bridge. The queen’s funeral went like clockwork and set a high bar,” a senior official told the Daily Beast.

Serious planning for Charles’ funeral began the day after the late Queen Elizabeth was buried on September 8, 2022.

It uses the Queen’s funeral plan dubbed “Operation London Bridge” as a field guide to ensure it would run smoothly.

The former Prince of Wales has never revealed the type of cancer he was diagnosed with, although he has declared it was not prostate cancer.

Buckingham Palace has since remained tight-lipped about the King’s medical journey, but well-placed insiders and political commentators have publicly said the monarch was “responding really well” to cancer treatment.
