Buckingham Palace disclosed on Wednesday that Britain’s King Charles III is set to undergo treatment for an enlarged prostate next week. The palace emphasized that the condition is benign and that the King is opting for a corrective procedure, a routine undertaken by numerous men each year.
In a concise statement, Buckingham Palace informed the public that the 75-year-old monarch’s scheduled engagements will be temporarily postponed as he recuperates. Notably, King Charles III wanted to share the details of his diagnosis to encourage men experiencing similar symptoms to prioritize their health, in accordance with public health advice, as conveyed by a royal source.
The King’s planned meetings and events at Dumfries House in Ayrshire, Scotland, are being rescheduled based on medical recommendations. The announcement was made to inform guests, including foreign dignitaries and cabinet ministers, about the situation.
Interestingly, news of King Charles’ upcoming treatment surfaced around 90 minutes after a separate revelation that his daughter-in-law, the Princess of Wales, is hospitalized for up to two weeks. Catherine, 42, underwent planned abdominal surgery at The London Clinic in central London on Tuesday, with reports indicating a non-cancerous condition, according to Kensington Palace.
