Despite positive reports from doctors, the king’s schedule will be adapted to his health condition. Decisions regarding his future commitments will be made on a case-by-case basis. This marks a significant step in his recovery, even though it is clear that a return to normal is not yet on the horizon.

At the end of March, Charles III had already given a glimpse of his condition when he participated in an Easter religious service at Windsor Castle. It was his first public appearance since the announcement of his illness on February 5th. On this occasion, he briefly greeted the crowd, but had cancelled all other previously planned public appearances.

The cautious management of his schedule underscores the ongoing challenges the king faces in his convalescence.
