Queen Camilla gets sassy when asked about King Charles’ cancer journey

Last month, King Charles began his return to his public-facing royal duties.

During the several public outings he’s completed so far in the last few weeks, the king has looked well.

However, during his latest outing, the 75-year-old opened up about one of the side effects he’s been dealing with while undergoing cancer treatment. According to the king himself, he’s lost his sense of taste.

Now, the king’s wife, Queen Camilla, is opening up even more about her husband’s cancer journey. And as it turns out, he may be as stubborn as his nephew said he was earlier this year.

While sitting down with Sky News Australia, Peter Phillips, the son of Princess Anne, said though his uncle is in “good spirits” and being “very pragmatic” about his situation, the king is “ultimately … hugely frustrated that he can’t get on and do everything that he wants to be able to do.”

“He understands that there’s a period of time that he really needs to focus on himself. But at the same time, he is always pushing his staff and everybody, his doctors and nurses, to be able to say, ‘Actually, can I do this and can I do that?’”

And as Camilla told the public this week, not much has changed.

In a sassy response to how Charles is doing, the queen admitted he is “getting better,” before adding, “Well, he would be (getting better) if he behaved himself,” The Independent reports.

Just several days ago, Charles was the talk of the town when he unveiled the newest royal portrait of him.

Big, and red, many onlookers were stunned by the direction the king and the artist took when creating the large painted portrait.

“The new work depicts His Majesty wearing the uniform of the Welsh Guards, of which he was made Regimental Colonel in 1975,” the royal family revealed. “The painting will ultimately hang in Drapers’ Hall in London.”

The artist, Jonathan Yeo, explained that he does his “best to capture the life experiences and humanity etched into any individual sitter’s face, and I hope that is what I have achieved in this portrait.”

“To try and capture that for His Majesty The King, who occupies such a unique role, was both a tremendous professional challenge, and one which I thoroughly enjoyed and am immensely grateful for,” Yeo said specifically of the portrait of Charles.

Many commenters revealed that despite the delicate touch of the butterfly, the portrait left them feeling “not good.”
