While Catherine is recovering from surgery, the Prince of Wales has paid her a visit to the hospital. Reportedly, the Princess of Wales is "doing well" in her recuperation.

Following a successful, prearranged abdominal surgery at the London Clinic private hospital, Catherine has spent her second night in the hospital.

When questioned about the King on a Thursday morning visit to Aberdeen, Queen Camilla said, "He's fine, thank you very much." She was awaiting the opportunity to resume employment."

On Wednesday afternoon, Kensington Palace made public the 42-year-old princess's stomach surgery. Her spouse, Prince William, was spotted driving out of the central London hospital's rear gate as she was receiving treatment.

Although the specifics of Catherine's procedure are still unknown, it is believed to have been planned rather than an emergency and has nothing to do with cancer.

However, it is obviously severe enough to require many weeks in the hospital followed by several months of recovery; as a result, the Princess of Wales won't be able to resume official activities until after Easter.

In the meantime, the Queen was questioned by the Lord Provost over the King's health on Thursday while she was alone at the Aberdeen Art Gallery in Scotland.

The 75-year-old King is currently getting ready for the treatment at his private residence, Birkhall, in Aberdeenshire.

The monarch's willingness to disclose his benignly enlarged prostate to the public also demonstrates a higher level of candor.

The 75-year-old monarch, who ascended to the throne in September of last year following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, will be checked into the hospital the following week, the palace announced.
