When the Prince took to the stage on Wednesday, he thanked the public for the kind messages of support for the King and Princess Kate.

He said: "I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you... for the kind messages of support for Catherine and for my father, especially in recent days. It means a great deal to us all."

"It's fair to say the past few weeks have had a rather 'medical' focus. So I thought I'd come to an air ambulance function to get away from it all".

It was revealed on Monday evening that the King has been diagnosed with cancer following an operation on his prostate, it has not been confirmed which type of cancer he has, only that he has a regular treatment plan and will be stepping away from public duties in the meantime.
