Approximately two weeks ago, during routine check-ups in Birkhall, Aberdeenshire, King Charles III was diagnosed with benign prostate enlargement. The monarch was admitted to The London Clinic on Friday, where he underwent a "corrective procedure" on his prostate, according to a Buckingham Palace spokesperson.

The father of William and Harry was initially expected to stay in a London hospital for two nights, beginning from Friday. However, as it turns out, Charles's stay has been extended for an additional day of observation. British newspapers suggest such an occurrence could be due to postoperative complications.

"It was initially thought that Charles would only stay in the hospital longer than two nights if there were unexpected problems," reports an insider from "The Sun".

While the doctors who are attending to the monarch state that the extended stay in The London Clinic is purely a preventive measure, the situation is reportedly causing "some concern". It's worth mentioning that King Charles III will not be performing any royal duties for the next month, as they will be "postponed for a short recovery period".

Mail Online reports that Queen Camilla visited her husband in the hospital on Monday afternoon and evening. An insider reveals that when Camilla left the hospital, she "appeared to be in good spirits".
