Charles admitted to London hospital – World

LONDON: Britain’s King Charles went into hospital on Friday to have planned treatment to address an enlarged prostate, Buckingham Palace said, joining his daughter-in-law Kate who is recovering from surgery.

The king was pictured arriving with his wife Queen Camilla at the private clinic in west London, where Kate, the Princess of Wales, is also having treatment after undergoing abdominal surgery last week.

A royal source said Charles had visited Kate ahead of his own treatment.

“The king was this morning admitted to a London hospital for scheduled treatment,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

“His majesty would like to thank all those who have sent their good wishes over the past week and is delighted to learn that his diagnosis is having a positive impact on public health awareness.” Last week the palace that Charles, 75, would undergo a “corrective procedure” for a benign condition which was common among men over 50, and Camilla said her husband was “fine” and “looking forward to getting back to work”.
