Charles III lost his sense of taste due to chemotherapy.

King Charles III of Great Britain said that during treatment for cancer he lost the ability to sense taste.

“King Charles III, who visited the Air Force Museum in Hampshire, today revealed that he had lost his sense of taste during cancer treatment,” British media reported.

It is noted that during the visit, the king spoke with veteran of the British armed forces Aaron Mapplebeck. He told the monarch that last year he underwent chemotherapy as part of treatment for testicular cancer, mentioning in this regard that he had lost his sense of taste. The king replied that the same thing happened to himself.

Buckingham Palace announced on February 5 that Charles III had been diagnosed with cancer, without specifying which organ was affected. The king began treatment, during which doctors advised him to postpone public events.


At the end of April, King Charles III of Great Britain, amid improved health, returned to public duties for the first time since his cancer diagnosis. He visited the Macmillan Cancer Center at University College Hospital.
