King Charles will undergo surgery next week to treat an enlarged prostate

Kensington Palace announced that the Princess of Wales is receiving treatment in hospital after undergoing successful abdominal surgery.

Buckingham Palace said the news came just one hour before it was announced that King Charles would also attend hospital next week to receive treatment for an enlarged prostate.

The condition is said to be benign and part of the corrective action. However, all public engagements have been postponed while he recovers.

Kate, 42, was admitted to the London clinic on Tuesday for the planned operation. She is said to be “doing well” after surgery, palace sources said times.

The future queen is expected to remain in hospital for 10 to 14 days before returning home to continue her recovery.

The palace said the princess is likely to spend between two and three months recovering, and is not expected to return to public duties until after Easter based on current medical advice.

She will not perform official duties while his wife is in the hospital and during the period immediately after her return home.

The heir to the throne, William, will combine being with Kate and taking care of their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Princes Louis, and he has postponed a number of engagements.

The palace refused to confirm the reason for Kate's treatment, but confirmed that the condition was not cancerous.

What are the symptoms of prostate enlargement?

According to the NHS, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPE) is “the medical term to describe an enlarged prostate, a condition that can affect how you urinate.” The prostate is a small gland in the pelvis, located between the penis and the bladder.

It is not cancerous, and does not increase the risk of prostate cancer.

It is common in men over 50, and can affect younger men, but this is very rare.

Palace: State advisors are not required while the King is in hospital

The prospect of the King being treated in hospital and the Prince of Wales ceasing his official duties to care for his wife raises questions about whose state advisers may be needed to intervene.

In the event that the King is unable to carry out his duties as King on a temporary basis due to illness, two or more Counselors of State are appointed under Letters Patent to act in their place.

However, Buckingham Palace said it did not expect state advisers to be necessary when the king was treated in hospital for benign prostatic hyperplasia next week.
