King Charles’s anticipated two-night stay at The London Clinic has been prolonged as he recuperates from surgery for an enlarged prostate, according to an insider.
Initially scheduled for a brief recovery period after the operation on Friday, the 75-year-old monarch now finds himself under doctors’ care for an additional night.
A source, speaking to The Sun, indicated that Charles’s prolonged stay was precautionary and not due to any unexpected complications.
Nonetheless, this extension, albeit precautionary, may have stirred some concerns among well-wishers.
The development comes with the announcement from the palace that King Charles might be absent from his duties for up to a month post-discharge, leading to the cancellation of several public engagements.
Queen Camilla made her fourth visit to her husband’s bedside on Sunday evening, leaving the hospital after spending less than four hours.
Her presence indicated her unwavering support and care during this period.
While King Charles will not engage in any royal duties during his recovery period, he is expected to review government papers once discharged, ensuring the continuity of his responsibilities.
