Camilla visited him on Saturday, in the middle of the day, for about three hours.

The Palace announced its diagnosis of prostatic hypertrophy last week to promote screening for this very common and generally not serious pathology in men of a certain age.

The palace emphasized the routine nature of this procedure, which affects “thousands of men” every year.

Charles III, who succeeded Elizabeth II in September 2022, canceled several public appearances last week to rest. After the operation, he must undergo “a short period” of recovery, the duration of which is unspecified.

Princess Kate, 42, has been hospitalized at the London Clinic since January 16. The pathology from which she suffers has not been disclosed.

The royal couple's services assured that his abdominal surgery was “successful”, demanded respect for his private life and demanded that “his personal medical data remain confidential”. The only information the monarchy leaked: It's not cancer.

On January 17th, the royal couple's services announced that she would have to stay in the hospital for ten to fourteen days. It is not expected to resume public activities until the end of March.

Prince William has canceled many public appearances while she recovers from her surgery.
