LONDON (AP) — King Charles III joined the Queen and other members of the royal family for an Easter service at Windsor Castle on Sunday in what will be his most significant public appearance since he was diagnosed with cancer last month.

The monarch waved cheerfully as he entered St George’s Chapel for a service expected to last around an hour.

The 75-year-old king’s appearance is seen as an effort to reassure the public after Charles withdrew from public duties following Buckingham Palace’s announcement in early February that he was undergoing treatment for a type of cancer unspecified. Although he worked behind palace walls, his appearance in public at a royal event like the Easter service is seen as a positive sign.

The service itself will be smaller than usual as Kate, Princess of Wales, is also being treated for cancer and has suspended public duties. The princess, her husband Prince William and their children will not attend the ceremony.

Kate’s shocking announcement that she too was suffering from cancer was made on March 22, after weeks of speculation about her health and whereabouts following major abdominal surgery in February.

As the Easter service takes place in a chapel at Windsor Castle, media will be able to witness the arrival of Charles and Queen Camilla.
