Lionel Richie has shared an update on King Charleshealth amid his ongoing cancer battle.

The monarch was diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer in February, and continues to receive outpatient care.

The 75-year-old returned to royal duties earlier this week, appearing at a cancer unit in Fitzrovia beside Queen Camilla.

Lionel, who performed at his coronation concert last year, opened up about how he’s doing while attending the King’s Trust Global Gala in New York on Thursday.

Appearing on the red carpet, the All Night Long musician told People Magazine: ‘Happily I can say he is doing fantastic. Again, I understand, he needs to sit still, you know what I’m saying.

‘The most important part is he is doing well. He’s back to his duties and so therefore, I wouldn’t want the first thing for him to do is come over [to the US] – let’s not prove anything here.’

Lionel also revealed that he was expecting a call from the King for details on how the charity event went, as soon as the bash ended.

‘Believe me, my question [from him] now is, “How was it?” After I finish tonight, I’m going to get that call saying, “Well, how was it?”’

Charles’s illness was discovered while he was being treated for benign prostate enlargement.

He spent three nights at the London Clinic private hospital, where doctor’s discovered a ‘separate issue of concern’.

Buckingham Palace announced his cancer diagnosis on February 6 but confirmed he does not have prostate cancer.

Following the news, he postponed all public engagements to focus on his health – but continued with his duties as head of state behind palace walls, conducting audiences and Privy Council meetings, including meeting with the Prime Minister.

On Tuesday, he was joined by his wife for a poignant first outing at the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre – as part of his mission to raise awareness of early diagnosis.

The Palace has warned that his diary will not be a full summer program, but his attendance will be announced nearer the time and ‘subject to doctors’ advice’, with ‘adaptations made where necessary to minimize risk’ to his recovery.

According to PA, It is understood the warmer weather would allow events to be staged outside and lower the risk posed by other people that many cancer patients face.
