The King to attend hospital for surgery on enlarged prostate

Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales

The King will attend hospital for surgery on an enlarged prostate.

The operation, which is a corrective procedure, will be performed next week.

His Majesty’s condition is benign, and he has cancelled a number of engagements in his diary whilst he recovers.

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said The King is keen to publicly share his diagnosis to encourage men who are experiencing symptoms to get checked.
