This exception made to the rule for Charles III
The title of monarch guarantees father of Harry and William receive above-average quality care. In the columns of Daily Mail, we thus learn that he will have “access to the best healthcare this country has to offer” and will therefore be “followed by the most accomplished specialists in the countrywho work in elite establishments because they are the most in demand – and often receive eye-watering salaries.. Charles III also benefits from a free pass in terms of care. While the majority of patients “wait weeks, even months” to start treatment, he had the privilege of starting it once the diagnosis has been made. The King of England will therefore have access “to some of the best cancer drugs in the world” which most Brits are unable to afford.
