Joy Behar Blasts Late Queen Elizabeth After King Charles Is Diagnosed With Cancer

Joy Behar appeared to blast the late Queen Elizabeth, who died in 2022 at the age of 96, after her son King Charles was diagnosed with cancer.
Behar Sounds Off
Daily Mail reported that during Tuesday’s episode of her ABC talk show “The View,” Behar appeared to criticize the Queen for not stepping down to give her son a chance on the throne. The Queen reigned for a record-breaking 70 years before her death in September of 2022.
“It’s like, why not step down and let Charles have his day in the sun?” Behar asked. “The poor guy, he finally gets to be king, and now he has an illness. That doesn’t seem fair. There’s something wrong about it.”
“The woman was in the position for 70 years, the longest reign,” she added. “I think she could have used some term limits.”
Unfortunately for Behar, however, social media users were quick to fire back at her by defending the Queen.
“Maybe #JoyBehar should get her 81-year old ass off television and make room for someone else?” one user commented, with another adding, “Joy should have been put on term limits years ago!”
“I have absolutely zero use for the royal family (see my Twitter handle), but that doesn’t change the fact that Joy Behar is an unconscionable pig,” a third user commented.

King Charles’ Cancer Diagnosis
Buckingham Palace announced on Monday that Charles has been diagnosed with an unspecified form of cancer.
“During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer,” the palace said in a statement. “His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties. Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.”
“The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure. He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible,” the statement added. “His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”

Royal Experts Weigh In
CBS News royal contributor Julian Payne, who previously served as communications director for then-Prince Charles, spoke out to say that the King has generally enjoyed “very robust health.”
“So, this will be something he’s not used to,” Payne said. “I think he will be stoic about it. I think he will do what the doctors are asking him to do, and I think his eye will be firmly focused on getting back to the job and getting back to full fitness.”
Royal expert Roya Nikkhah said that despite not being as popular as his mother, the King still enjoys an ” enormous amount of affection and goodwill” from the public.
“The British public have been really shocked and saddened, as much as they were when the Queen was very unwell and in her final years,” she continued. “The nation will want to rally around the king and hope he makes a full recovery.”
