King Charles III of Britain, who underwent prostate surgery on Friday, is spending his second day in a London clinic, where he received a visit from his wife, Camilla.
The 75-year-old king arrived at the London Clinic on Friday morning with Camilla. Also at the clinic is Catherine, the wife of heir-to-the-throne Prince William, recovering from abdominal surgery.
Queen Camilla visited him on Saturday around noon, spending about three hours with the convalescing king.
The palace announced last week that King Charles III had been diagnosed with prostate enlargement, intending to encourage men of a certain age to undergo routine screenings for this common and generally non-serious condition.
The palace emphasized the routine nature of this procedure, which affects “thousands of men each year.”
Following his surgery, Queen Camilla conveyed on Friday afternoon that Charles “is doing well,” without specifying when he would be discharged.
King Charles III, who succeeded Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022, canceled several public engagements last week to rest.
Princess Catherine, 42, has been hospitalized at the London Clinic since January 16. The nature of her ailment has not been disclosed. The couple’s services stated that her abdominal surgery was “successful” and requested respect for their privacy, urging that personal medical information remain confidential. The only information leaked is that it is not cancer.
Catherine is unlikely to resume public activities until late March, and Prince William has canceled several public commitments while his wife recuperates.
