According to the palace, the cancer was discovered last month after he was admitted to a London hospital for corrective surgery for an enlarged prostate. Prostate cancer was ruled out to CNN by a royal source, without providing details.

Doctors advised him to step down from his public duties, but the palace confirmed that he would continue his government obligations and papers.

Carlos is expected to continue receiving daily red boxes of government documents so that he can continue working on state documents at home. CNN has learned that the king is expected to continue his weekly meeting with the Prime Minister and alternative arrangements will be made if his doctors advise him to reduce personal contact to a minimum.

Prince William, Charles' son and heir to the throne, and Queen Camilla are expected to take on more public commitments to compensate for the king's absence.
