The brother of King Charles III replaced the monarch at the ceremony at Buckingham Palace. All because the king is undergoing treatment for cancer.

Prince Edward and Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, took part in observing the changing of the guard. The event itself was familiar — April 8 marked the 120th anniversary of the cordial agreement. This is a diplomatic agreement between Great Britain and France on colonial issues.

Against this background, Edward and Sophie watched as the British and French military carried out the changing of the guard, writes People.

BAGNET recalls The fact that King Charles III was diagnosed with cancer became known back in February. He decided to begin treatment for the disease and performed part of his royal duties remotely. But he is not able to attend public events.

As for the April ceremony, Prince Edward, Sophie and the French Ambassador inspected the troops. This is the first time in history that representatives of Scotland took part in the ceremony — a country that is not part of the Commonwealth of Nations.

Charles III of the royal family is not the only one missing events due to illness — Kate Middleton did not attend the annual Easter service as she continues to battle cancer.< /p>
