King opens some of the 7000 letters and cards

The King was left tickled pink by messages from well-wishers, pictures released by Buckingham Palace have shown.

Charles pictured looking through some of the 7,000 messages of support Buckingham Palace’s correspondence team has received from around the world since his cancer diagnosis.

In one of the messages the King received, he was told to keep his ‘chin up’ and ‘remain positive’.

Many share their own experiences of cancer or offer their good wishes and advice for a speedy recovery.  One adult well-wisher told the King: “Chin up, chest out, remain positive and don’t let it get you down.

“Trust me it works but the main thing is family.”

One card, like many sent to the King, was hand-drawn, with the words “get well soon” written beneath a picture of a crown, complete with rubies and emeralds, and with a rainbow on the back.

The public have included an address they will receive a response of thanks for their cards or letters.
