Queen says King is ‘fine’ and ‘looking forward to getting back to work’ ahead of prostate treatment | UK News
Queen Camilla has said the King is “fine” and is “looking forward to getting back to work” as he awaits treatment for an enlarged prostate.
Buckingham Palace announced yesterday the King is set to attend hospital for the treatment next week.
The palace has postponed his engagements in the meantime.
It is not known exactly what procedure the King, who is 75, requires, but the palace said he will need “a short period of recuperation”.
He is at his private home Birkhall in Aberdeenshire, where he is preparing for the procedure.
The Queen has been visiting the Aberdeen Art Gallery, and was asked about the King by the Lord Provost.
She replied: “He’s fine, thank you very much. Looking forward to getting back to work.”
It comes as the Prince of Wales visited his wife Kate in hospital while she recovers from abdominal surgery.
William was seen leaving the private London Clinic at around 12.35pm on Thursday.
The princess was admitted on Tuesday for the successful, planned procedure but is expected to stay in hospital for 10 to 14 days before returning to her Adelaide Cottage home in Windsor.
Sky News understands the planned surgery was routine.
Kensington Palace refused to confirm what Kate was being treated for but said the condition was non-cancerous.
