Ammon News - King Charles has attended the annual Easter Sunday service at Windsor Castle, his first major public appearance since he was diagnosed with cancer.

The king, 75, smiled and waved as he joined Queen Camilla at the Easter Mattins service at St George’s Chapel.

The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh and their son, James, Princess Anne and her husband, Timothy Laurence, and the Duke and Duchess of Yorkalso attended.

The Princess of Wales and her family were absent as she continues her cancer treatment.

In an Easter sermon, the archbishop of Canterbury wished the king and Catherine well and encouraged the congregation to pray for them during their treatment.

Justin Welby also commended the royals for their dignity and praised them for their “lack of selfishness”, which he said “boosted others” to do the same.

He said: “In each of our lives, there are moments which change us for ever – sometimes it is individual. We have watched and sympathised with, and felt alongside, the dignity of the king and the Princess of Wales as they have talked of their cancer, and in doing so, by their lack of selfishness, by their grace and their faith, boosted so many others.”
