The BBC reported that the king, 75, will be accompanied by Queen Camilla. Prince William, Princess Catherine and their children will not be at the church service.

The Princess of Wales last week announced that she is battling an undisclosed form of cancer which was found after she underwent abdominal surgery earlier this year.

The king was also diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer earlier this year, and Sunday’s service will be his first major public appearance since his diagnosis, ABC News reported.

He continues to conduct the country’s business, including meeting each week with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. On Tuesday, he met with community and faith leaders at the palace.

Along with the king and queen, only select royals will be at the service on Sunday, with it being called “Easter Lite,” The Telegraph reported.

Camilla will represent the king at the annual Royal Maundy Thursday service at Worchester Cathedral. He has recorded an audio message that will be played at the service.
