He’s ‘Aware That Time Is Ticking’

(StraightShooterNews.com) – Following the disclosure of his cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment, it has been noted that King Charles is keenly “aware that time is ticking” to leave his mark as monarch.

Talking to Fox News, royal expert Hilary Fordwich shared, “Given he had the longest wait in history as heir to the throne, given his age, as well as his current health crisis, he is poignantly aware that time is ticking.”

“He has been preparing for this role his entire life, being in line for the throne for 70 years,” she added.

Fordwich also pointed out that Charles is energetically pursuing his responsibilities, eager to make significant contributions during his reign.

“He wants to make his mark. So all that downtime away from his people makes him anxious and agitated,” she explained.

According to Fordwich, Charles’s efforts are substantial, not merely symbolic appearances.

“Every single one of the projects he has undertaken is designed to make a real mark. They are not just honorary where he shows up once in a while. He has devoted his life to having an impact.” She firmly stated that “the last thing that the nation wants is a lazy monarch.”

Echoing this sentiment, Queen Camilla recently mentioned that Charles is “doing fine except he won’t slow down and won’t do what he’s told.” She has been encouraging him to take it easier as he continues his treatment.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams described Charles as a “workaholic who skips lunch.” He noted that Charles’s health team is closely managing his schedule, but he remains vigorously involved in his duties.

“His doctors will control a good deal of his itinerary as it has to be announced in advance, but he is clearly recovering judging by the number of engagements he is undertaking and the energy he has shown during them,” Fitzwilliams remarked.

He added a quote from the late Queen Elizabeth II to underline the importance of the monarch’s visibility: “I must be seen to be believed.” Fitzwilliams noted, “That is one of the factors driving him.”

Recently, Charles attended the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings in France, and after a brief pause, he is set to appear at the upcoming Trooping the Colour ceremony in London.

Unlike previous years, he will not be on horseback but will ride in a horse-drawn carriage alongside Camilla.
