Prime Minister Narendra Modi has wished “speedy recovery and good health" to King Charles. PM Modi’s message comes after Buckingham Palace announced that the British monarch had been battling cancer.

"I join the people of India in wishing speedy recovery and good health to His Majesty King Charles III," PM Modi wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

Along with PM Modi, many others wished for King Charles’ recovery. “That's a really kind and thoughtful sentiment, showing solidarity with the people of India and the Royal Family during this challenging time," posted one user on X.

“Sending wishes from India for the swift recovery and good health of His Majesty King Charles III. May he regain strength and well-being soon," posted another.

That's enough," wrote one user on the micro-blogging platform. “What does India have to do with the King of England?" said another.

“decolonization is the need of the hour for Bharat to achieve her past glory. He may be your Majesty but for me he is just Charles III.So, call him just Charles III... That's enough !" wrote another user.
