Two members of Britain’s Royal Family are recovering in hospitals after undergoing planned surgeries. King Charles, 75, underwent surgery for an enlarged prostate on Friday morning.

Buckingham Palace announced King Charles is “doing well.”

“The King was this morning admitted to a London hospital for scheduled treatment,” the statement read. “His Majesty would like to thank all those who have sent their good wishes over the past week and is delighted to learn that his diagnosis is having a positive impact on public health awareness.”

On Jan. 17, Buckingham Palace announced that King Charles would have a “corrective procedure” to treat an enlarged prostate and that the condition was benign (not cancerous).

“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 hospital next week for a corrective procedure,” the palace statement said. “The King’s public engagements will be postponed for a short period of recuperation.”

The King wanted to share his diagnosis to encourage men who may be experiencing the same symptoms.

Prior to entering the hospital, King Charles visited his daughter-in-law Kate Middleton who underwent surgery for an abdominal issue last week. She was expected to remain hospitalized for 10 days followed by several months of recovery at home.

The Princess of Wales, 42, chose to keep details about her surgery private.

Kensington Palace said Kate has expressed a “desire to maintain as much normality for her children as possible.”

Princess Kate shares Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, with Prince William.

The Prince of Wales was last seen visiting his wife at The London Clinic on Jan. 18.

William, 41, and longtime nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo are taking care of the children until Kate (right) returns home.

“They are a modern royal couple,” author Robert Hardman tells People.com. “He doesn’t want to leave it all to the nanny.”

“So much of what they do with those kids is about normalizing life and not making them feel like they are in a special gilded cage,” Hardman added.
