King Charles will not undertake royal duties for a month after his surgery for an enlarged prostate.

Sky News has reported the King will take up to a month off to recover from his surgery that took place at the London Clinic on 26 January.

Royal Correspondent Laura Bundock said the King will have a “period of recuperation” but will be available for state matters while in hospital. He will also be able to attend to his red box of royal matters once he has returned home.

Doctors reportedly urged the monarch to rest ahead of his surgery and the exact form of treatment for the enlarged prostate has not been revealed.

He was diagnosed with the benign issue on 17 January and wanted to alert the public to encourage men to get themselves checked.

The King, who remains hospitalised, is said to be “doing well” according to Queen Camilla.

King Charles’s last royal duty was on Thursday, 25 January, when he carried out duties in private.
