Tearful King Charles reads get-well cards from fans amid cancer battle — see emotional video

King Charles is a recipient of worldwide get-well soon wishes.

Buckingham Palace released a video to social media Friday showing the ailing monarch, who is battling cancer, opening fan mail sent to the establishment by thousands of people comforting him through snail mail.

The lighthearted yet touching video starts with Charles, 75, reading a card with a cartoon dog wearing a cone pictured on it, playfully reading, “King Charles, at least you don’t have to wear a cone.”

Text placed on top of the video claims, “The Correspondence Team at Buckingham Palace have received more than 7,000 letters and cards from across the world.”

“The King has been sent a selection [of letters] in his daily red box of paperwork,” the video claimed, showing the King’s giant briefcase-looking personal mobile mailbox.

“Many share their own experience with cancer. Others offer good wishes and advice for a speedy recovery.”

“To everyone who took the time to write, THANK YOU,” the video said, showing blurbs of some of the messages, including one person who wrote, “The main thing is family.”

“As His Majesty has said, ‘Such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement,’” the video concluded.

The emotional clip comes days after Charles had his first face-to-face meeting with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak since beginning treatment for his cancer.

During the meeting, His Majesty said, “I’ve received countless heartwarming messages and cards. They’ve brought tears to my eyes most of the time.”

Charles has also received support from his estranged son, Prince Harry, who rushed to London from Los Angeles to see his father after learning about his diagnosis.

When asked by “Good Morning America” earlier this month if his father’s diagnosis could have a “reunifying effect” on his family, Harry said, “Absolutely. Yeah, I’m sure.”

“Throughout all these [Invictus] families, I see it on a day-to-day basis, the strength of the family unit coming together. I think any illness, any sickness brings families together,” he added from the ski slopes of his Invictus Games-founded training camp.

Asked for “his outlook” on Charles’ health, Harry said that information “stays between me and him.”
