has been revealed ,

although it has been made public that it was detected precisely during the tests performed during his last hospital stay.

Carlos returned to London from Sandringham, Norfolk, on Monday morning to begin receiving

"regular treatment"

as an outpatient later that day. Buckingham Palace states that

the King remains entirely positive

about his prognosis and that he hopes to return to his public duties as soon as possible."

For now,

he will postpone his official commitments

and other royals are expected to stand in for him while he receives treatment. What he will do is continue with

his constitutional role as head of state

, including procedures and private meetings.

On Sunday he was seen attending

a church service in Sandringham

, where he greeted the crowd and appeared in high spirits. Now, the presence of his son could give him the necessary encouragement to face the complicated process that awaits him.
