King Charles III underwent prostate surgery this Friday, January 26, 2024, at The London Clinic, a private hospital in London where his daughter-in-law, Princess of Wales Kate Middleton, is also recovering from abdominal surgery.
The 75-year-old monarch arrived at the hospital in a gray suit and dark coat, accompanied by Queen Camilla.
Before entering, he was able to visit Prince William’s wife, who has been hospitalized for more than a week for her surgery, the details of which have not been revealed, but it has been ruled out that it is related to cancer.

The British Royal Household said in a statement that King Charles would be admitted on Friday, January 26, and that the monarch was grateful for the support he had received since his diagnosis was announced.
He also expressed his satisfaction at having helped to raise awareness of this health problem, which affects many men.
“The King was this morning admitted to a London hospital for scheduled treatment,” Buckingham Palace confirmed.
“His Majesty would like to thank all those who have sent their good wishes over the past week and is delighted to learn that his diagnosis is having a positive impact on public health awareness.”
Buckingham Palace announced on Jan. 17 that Charles would head to the hospital for a “corrective procedure” to treat the benign condition.
King Charles’ prostate surgery will require him to take a number of days off from his official engagements, although the recovery time may be longer than expected.
