King Charles had previously sought medical attention for an enlarged prostate, with Buckingham Palace stating on January 16, stating, “In common with thousands of men each year, The King has sought treatment for an enlarged prostate. His Majesty’s condition is benign, and he will attend the hospital next week for a corrective procedure. The King’s public engagements will be postponed for a short period of recuperation.”
