King Charles III hospitalized for prostate surgery


King Charles III, 75, was hospitalized this Friday morning due to a “benign” enlarged prostate, Buckingham Palace announced. “The king was admitted to a London hospital this morning for scheduled treatment. Her Majesty would like to thank everyone who has sent her well wishes over the past week and is delighted to learn that her diagnosis is having a positive impact on public health awareness,” the palace said.

The royal family had, in a rare move, announced on January 17 that the king would soon have prostate surgery. “Like thousands of men each year, the king consulted for an enlarged prostate. What His Majesty is suffering from is benign and he will go to hospital next week for a corrective procedure,” the palace said in a brief statement, specifying that his public engagements would be postponed for a short period to allow him to to recover.

This is the first time since his accession to the throne on September 8, 2022 upon the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II that the palace has publicly discussed the state of health of the sovereign. Prostate hypertrophy is a very common pathology in men of a certain age and which, if left untreated, can lead to a progressive deterioration in bladder function as well as urinary infections.
