King Charles leaves London hospital after prostate surgery

Prince Charles tests positive for coronavirus

The British Head of State, King Charles III, left a luxury London hospital on Monday, three days after receiving an operation to treat an enlarged prostate.

The 75-year-old king, clad in a suit and black overcoat, waved to the throng as he and Queen Camilla exited the facility and hopped into a waiting car.

Buckingham Palace said Charles, who spent three nights in the hospital, has delayed his upcoming activities while he recovers.

“His Majesty would like to thank the medical team and all those involved in supporting his hospital visit and is grateful for all the kind messages he has received in recent days,” a statement read.

He became king on September 8, 2022, following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, and has been in relatively good health, with the exception of polo and skiing injuries.

On January 17, the palace announced that Charles had been diagnosed with the disease, breaking with a tradition of relative confidentiality surrounding the monarch’s health.

Charles wants to publicise his case to raise awareness about the illness, which affects urination in men over the age of 50.

Symptoms include a frequent desire to pass water and trouble completely emptying the bladder.

Catherine, Princess of Wales, Charles’ daughter-in-law, had been admitted to the same central London hospital following stomach surgery.

Her Kensington Palace office announced earlier on Monday that she had been discharged and will be recovering at the home where she lives with Charles’ son and heir, Prince William, and their three children.
