King Charles III attends Easter service amid cancer battle

Funeral plans set amidst battle with pancreatic cancer as health seems to worsen


With King Charles III of Britain battling pancreatic cancer, funeral arrangements have been set, named "Operation Menai Bridge" akin to Queen Elizabeth II's ceremonies, dubbed "Operation London Bridge." Despite his relatively short reign of 18 months, the monarch's final resting plans are now a priority, according to royal insiders.

Plans entail moving Charles' body from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall for lying in state, followed by a formal funeral nine days later, likely at Windsor Castle's royal vault. Sources suggest his health may be worse than officially disclosed, with reports indicating a prognosis of just two years.

While Charles attends a service on Easter Sunday, he remains absent from the royal calendar, with Princess Anne assuming many duties. Prince William and Kate Middleton face health crises of their own. Tensions arise as Charles questions William's readiness for the throne, while Queen Camilla reportedly expresses frustration over Charles' health and diminished role.

The future of the monarchy appears uncertain amidst Charles' declining health and familial tensions, casting doubts on the succession plan.
