King Charles Says He Lost His Sense Of Taste

King Charles has spoken up about losing his sense of taste as he discusses the adverse affects of cancer treatment.

During a visit to the Army Flying Museum in Middle Wallop, Hampshire, today, May 13, Charles chatted with a British Army veteran called Aaron Mapplebeck, who informed the royal family member that he had lost his sense of taste while receiving testicular cancer treatment last year.

During their talk, King Charles stated that he had also lost his sense of taste during his treatment, but he did not say whether the effects were temporary.

King Charles III is undergoing treatment for an unidentified kind of cancer and was granted permission by his doctors to resume public responsibilities last month.

Before his first major investiture on Tuesday, May 14, following his cancer diagnosis, the King officially handed over the duty of colonel-in-chief of the Army Air Corps to Prince William today, May 13.

The king and the heir-to-the-throne were seen smiling and chatting together during a visit to the Army Aviation Centre in Middle Wallop on Monday, May 13.

It occurred after Kensington Palace shared two photographs of the Prince of Wales as an Apache pilot.

“Time flies! Looking back at the last two visits to @ArmyAirCorps in 1999 and 2008 ahead of today’s handover at Middle Wallop,” the post on X said.

The Duke of Sussex previously served in the Army Air Corps, where he was an Apache helicopter commander and co-pilot gunner during his second tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2012.

When it was announced last year that William would take over the role, it was viewed as a blow to Harry.

The King admitted the handover was “tinged with great sadness,” but expressed hope that the Army Air Corps would continue to grow from strength to strength.

He said: “Let me just say what a great joy it is to be with you even briefly on this occasion but also it is tinged with great sadness after 32 years of knowing you all, admiring your many activities and achievements through the time that I’ve been lucky enough to be colonel-in-chief of the Army Air Corps.

“I do hope you’ll go from strength to strength in the future with the Prince of Wales as your new colonel-in-chief.

“The great thing is he’s a very good pilot indeed – so that’s encouraging.”

The King also erected a plaque honouring an Apache AH Mk1 on exhibit, the first of its kind to be installed in a UK museum.

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
