For tragic reasons, King Charles was made to sit separate from the Royal Family during the Easter service

Despite his ongoing battle with cancer, King Charles courageously attended this weekend’s regular Easter service at St. George’s Chapel. Given the many concerns regarding the King’s health and well-being, royal followers were probably relieved to see him.

Before he and Camilla entered the chapel, Charles also took the time to shake hands and say hello to others in the gathering.

It was the King’s first public appearance since he started receiving cancer treatment two months ago. Although the type of disease he has and its stage are unknown, many people saw Charles’s appearance as encouraging.

In light of everything that has been stated and speculated about Kate Middleton in recent weeks, King Charles’s health has received less attention. The 75-year-old king was reportedly moving back and forth between Sandringham and London for his corresponding periods of rest and medical care, but there haven’t been many updates on how his recuperation is going. Because of this, there was a lot of excitement surrounding Charles’s first public appearance after his illness was revealed.

He participated in the customary Easter ceremony at St. George’s Chapel this past weekend with other members of the Royal Family, albeit in smaller numbers than normal. The event was bound to draw attention given the recent spate of incidents, but it was likely the seating arrangement that became the

That is to say, there was speculation on the internet when Charles was sat separately from the other royals in the chapel. Needless to say, this was no haphazard move, nor was it based on some archaic custom that doesn’t seem to make sense in the modern world. No, there was a significant, if not heartbreaking, explanation.

According to accounts, this year’s Easter ceremony hosted by the Royal Family was considerably smaller in scope and had some modifications. First, only the two of them—Charles and Queen Camilla, who are typically spotted entering the chapel together with the other royals—arrived by car.

Not only that, but the customary lunch that the King held following the service was also cancelled. Although the Royal Family is rumoured to get together discreetly during the lunch, things were different this year.

You have enough details to leave people baffled when you combine those with the previously noted choice to have Charles sit alone within St. George’s Chapel. As he continues his cancer treatment, King Charles was reportedly sat apart from the rest of his family to protect him. The Royal Family’s size was also restricted to reduce the risk of infection, at the advise of experts.

Needless to say, many royal enthusiasts were pleased to see Charles at the funeral. Instagram users shared a slideshow of their images from the ceremony along with comments such as “God save the King!” and “In my prayers.”

After the elderly king took the time to shake hands with those in attendance at St. George’s Chapel, some expressed concern for him. In an attempt to prevent illness, someone suggested that he either keep an eye on things or be kept apart from people. Another person wondered, “So should he have gone and shaken hands with loads of strangers…” “I bet he wasn’t supposed to walk around and shake hands like this,” remarked a third. His physicians won’t be happy.
