Queen Camilla says Charles is ‘getting on’ and ‘doing his best’ following prostate surgery as she opens new Maggie’s cancer support centre

The King is ‘carrying on’ and ‘doing his best’ after his three-night stay in hospital, the Queen said today.

Camilla, 76, was asked how her husband was doing as she officially opened a new Maggie’s cancer support center at the Royal Free Hospital in north-west London.

She was introduced to donors, including Sir Gerald Ronson, who inquired about the king’s health following his treatment for an enlarged prostate.

“He’s going on, doing his best,” she replied.

Dori Dana-Haeri, who led the fundraising effort for the new centre, said she was ‘so glad’ that Charles, 75, was healthy.

Queen Camilla nodded as she said, “Thank you.”

Supporter Sir Michael Pakenham added: ‘All the best wishes to His Majesty for the very best recovery.’

Camilla replied: ‘Thank you very much, that’s very kind. I’ll pass it on.’

The King was discharged from The London Clinic on Monday and appeared in good spirits as he left the hospital with his wife by his side.

The engagement on Wednesday was Camilla’s 17th visit to a Maggie’s Center and her first as Queen.

She has been president of Maggie’s since 2008.

“I try to get around them, but every time another pops up, so I never quite catch up,” she joked.

Greeted by Royal Collection Trust Curators, the King’s wife enjoyed a short tour of the house before seeing the 20 works created to celebrate its 100th anniversary.

These include beautiful miniature manuscripts – carefully handwritten and decorated.

They were bound by leading designer bookbinders – ‘as ​​part of the commemorative initiative to establish a Modern Miniature Library, providing a snapshot of contemporary literature in Britain’.

Charles smiled and waved as he was released from hospital on Monday, three days after undergoing a successful procedure for an enlarged prostate.

Wearing a gray suit and blue coat, Charles looked steady on his feet as he walked out of The London Clinic in Marylebone with Queen Camilla by his side after three nights under observation.

The 75-year-old monarch was admitted to the private hospital at around 9am last Friday morning as he underwent a corrective procedure for the benign condition.

It comes just hours after his daughter-in-law, the Princess of Wales, left the same clinic two weeks after a planned abdominal operation.

Buckingham Palace released a statement following the King’s release from hospital which read: ‘The King was released from hospital this afternoon following planned medical treatment and has rescheduled upcoming public events to allow for a period of private recovery.

“His Majesty would like to thank the medical team and everyone involved in supporting his hospital visit, and is grateful for all the kind messages he has received in recent days.”

Kate Middleton also returned home today after a two-week stay in hospital after abdominal surgery – with flowers showing a royal aide carrying flowers left by well-wishers back to Windsor.

Kate, 42, is not expected to make official engagements until after Easter, with her husband Prince William clearing his diary of official duties while she recovers at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor Great Park.

Kate went into hospital 14 days ago on Tuesday January 16 – with royal aides saying she was ‘making good progress’ and would now recover from home.

MailOnline understands her return to official duties will depend on medical advice closer to the time, and William will return to public engagements once she is settled.
