The Princess of Wales has recently undergone planned abdominal surgery, and concurrently, it has been disclosed that King Charles III of Britain is scheduled for a “corrective procedure” to address an enlarged prostate gland. Buckingham Palace announced on Wednesday that the 75-year-old king, who ascended the throne last September following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, will be admitted to the hospital next week. The palace clarified that the king’s engagements have been canceled to facilitate his recovery from the upcoming procedure.

A statement from the palace emphasized that, akin to numerous men annually, King Charles has sought treatment for a benign enlarged prostate. The corrective procedure is set for the upcoming week, with the palace officials stating that the king willingly shared his diagnosis details to encourage other men experiencing symptoms to undergo check-ups.

Enlarged prostate, prevalent in men over 50, can impact urination but does not elevate the risk of prostate cancer, according to health officials. The announcement about King Charles III closely followed news of Princess Kate, the daughter-in-law of the king, having undergone successful scheduled abdominal surgery. However, she is expected to remain hospitalized for 10 to 14 days, with a delay in resuming her royal duties until Easter. The Prince of Wales, determined to support his wife, has adjusted his schedule, leading to uncertainties regarding a planned visit to Rome.

In a country known for its avid interest in the royal family’s affairs, the palace conveyed the princess’s appreciation for the anticipated public interest. It was emphasized that she hopes the public understands her desire to maintain normalcy for her children during this time.
