King Charles led D-Day commemorations in Normandy just 24 hours after he was in hospital receiving cancer treatment, it has been revealed.

 

 

Charles, 75, received treatment at a hospital in London on Tuesday, but he was determined to join veterans the following day and “lead from the front.” The monarch first travelled to Portsmouth on Wednesday where he delivered a eight-minute speech.

 

Queen Camilla was left teary eyed by her husband’s address and the pair were later seen mingling with some of the 21 D-Day heroes who were invited to the debate. Charles reduced the time of his appearance by 45 minutes on medical advice.

 

The “carefully calibrated” appearance led Charles to swiftly travel to Normandy, in northern France, for the milestone 80th anniversary commemoration, the Sun reported. Charles praised the D-Day heroes in a passionate speech at the British Normandy Memorial where the names of 22,442 people who were killed on D-Day and French civilians who died during the war in Normandy.

He urged people to learn from the past and called for free nations to “stand together to oppose tyranny.” Charles also praised the generation who endured the Second World War as those who “did not flinch.”

Alongside Camilla, he met with veterans and told them he was “doing well.” The Sun reported Charles’ doctors ordered “compromises” that saw Prince William step in for his dad when he joined dozens of world leaders at the international ceremony on Omaha Beach just hours later.

William’s appearance allowed Charles to return to the UK following a gruelling three days. The commemorations at Omaha Beach were due to run from 3.30pm on 5.30pm on June 6 but many world leaders stayed until 7pm.

Charles’ team were aware that a similar ceremony for the 75th anniversary event over-ran by two hours in 2019. royal sources told the outlet: “All events were looked at in consultation with doctors. They were extremely long days and some compromises had to be made.”
