Monarch undergoes “corrective procedure” for enlarged prostate
London – King Charles III has been discharged from a private London clinic after undergoing surgery for an enlarged prostate. The 75-year-old monarch was admitted to the London Clinic, where his daughter-in-law, the Princess of Wales, also recently had abdominal surgery. Princess Kate Middleton has since returned home.
Diagnosis and Procedure
King Charles III was diagnosed with the benign condition on January 17 after experiencing undisclosed symptoms. He canceled engagements and was advised to rest before undergoing the procedure, which was successfully completed by Friday afternoon. The decision to announce the surgery in advance was made in an effort to encourage other men to prioritize their prostate health.
Kate Middleton, the wife of Prince William, is “making good progress” in her recovery from planned surgery on January 16. The palace confirmed that her condition was not cancerous. As a result, the princess has canceled her public engagements until after Easter.
Gratitude for the Care
The palace expressed gratitude to the entire team at The London Clinic, especially the dedicated nursing staff, for the care provided to both the king and the princess. The specific details of Charles’ procedure were not disclosed, but officials confirm that it was a benign condition. His release from the hospital is expected soon.
