An enlarged prostate has led to King Charles’ hospital admission, according to Buckingham Palace.
The exclusive facility, London Clinic, is where the procedure will be performed. Last week, Catherine, Princess of Wales, underwent surgery there.
Before starting his own scheduled treatment on Friday morning, it is understood that King paid a visit to his daughter-in-law at the hospital.
King Charles’s stay in the hospital is still unknown.
On his arrival at the hospital in Marylebone, central London, Queen Camilla was spotted with the king.
King Charles had disclosed his health issue to encourage other men to have their prostates examined.
Doctors and organisations applauded the increase in searches concerning enlarged prostates on the NHS website that followed the disclosure.
The King was “delighted to learn that his diagnosis is having a positive impact on public health awareness,” according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.
He expressed gratitude to others who had “sent their good wishes” as well.
Last Monday, the palace disclosed that 75-year-old King Charles will be getting a “corrective procedure” for his enlarged prostate. To have the surgery, he left Sandringham on Thursday and flew to London.
According to the NHS, non-cancerous benign prostate problems are frequent among elderly men.
The gland that sits right below the bladder is called the enlarged prostate, and it can cause discomfort in about one in three men over 50.
The King’s position as head of state does not need to be altered by the constitution as a result of the medical care. The “counsellors of state” who fill in for a monarchy in critical condition won’t be required.
The King is receiving care at the same hospital that last week performed “abdominal surgery” on his daughter-in-law Catherine.
It is anticipated that she will recover at home in Windsor for several months after leaving the hospital. This indicates that the princess will postpone her public engagements until after Easter.
The news that Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, had been diagnosed with malignant melanoma, a type of skin cancer, constituted the third royal health story of the week.
It had been found during her breast cancer therapy, which began in the summer of last year.
The duchess, who was formerly married to Prince Andrew, said, “Naturally another cancer diagnosis has been a shock, but I’m in good spirits and grateful for the many messages of love and support.”
The duchess will do additional inquiries, according to a representative for her, to make sure the melanoma was discovered early on.
