King Charles’ Funeral Plans Updated Regularly Amid Cancer Battle

( – England’s monarchs plan their funerals decades in advance. Operation London Bridge, Queen Elizabeth II’s service, was created as far back as the 1960s. King Charles III’s funeral plan has already been created and is reportedly updated regularly.

Royal sources recently told The Daily Beast that King Charles’ diagnosis is not good. The monarch’s funeral plans, dubbed Operation Menai Bridge, were allegedly updated since he received the news that he has cancer. Friends of the king spoke to the website and claimed, “It’s not good.”

According to sources, there’s a document circulating that reviews what went well at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral and what could be done better when King Charles dies. The Cabinet Office refused to comment on the story about the funeral plans but said it’s not unusual to not comment on them.

A military member called it “absurd” that anyone was reading into the fact that the plans were under review. They said, “Planning for the worst is what the military do,” the unnamed official said. They pointed out the scale of the funeral service for the king of England.

King Charles announced he had cancer in February. The 75-year-old didn’t disclose the type of cancer but said it wasn’t related to his enlarged prostate. He’s undergoing treatment for the disease but it’s not clear how much longer that will take. Although some believe his prognosis isn’t good, NBC News reported Buckingham Palace said his “doctors are sufficiently pleased with the progress [he’s] made so far.” In the meantime, King Charles will resume his duties but it’s not going to “be a full summer program.”

King Charles isn’t the only member of the royal family to battle cancer in recent years. Sources also claimed Queen Elizabeth was fighting bone marrow cancer in the months leading up to her death. Her friend Gyles Brandreth confirmed that claim. Princess Kate is also receiving treatment after a cancer diagnosis. She underwent surgery in January and is now receiving preventative chemotherapy.
