The King’s staff ‘are worried he is doing too much for a man of 75’, a well-placed insider has claimed. 

It comes after Queen Camilla, 76, was pictured smiling today as she visited her husband at The London Clinic where he underwent a successful procedure for an enlarged prostate.

Her Majesty has reportedly told ‘workaholic’ Charles to ‘slow down’ in the wake of his recent health scare; the monarch is known to be a fan of early morning starts and post-midnight finishes.

However, an insider told The Telegraph that the Queen ‘knows [his work] gives him an enormous sense of fulfilment and that she’s never going to change the habits of a lifetime’.

Meanwhile, one source claimed: ‘The people who work for him are worried he is doing too much for a man of 75. It’s sometimes a struggle to keep up with him.’

Charles has gained a reputation for being dedicated to his work and packed 2023 full of engagements – with one tally suggesting he undertook 516 over the course of the year including 94 abroad. 

But an insider has since claimed that the Queen has urged the King – who has postponed his engagements while undertaking ‘a short period of recuperation’ – to take a new approach to his work. 

Speaking to The Sun, they said: ‘The Queen has told him he needs to slow down a bit.’ 

In the 2018 BBC documentary Prince, Son and Heir, Prince William said: ‘The man never stops. When we were kids there were bags and bags and bags of work that the office just sent to him.’

Prince Harry also shared the feeling that their father should ‘slow down’ a bit.

The Queen’s visit on Sunday was her third to the private hospital since she arrived with Charles on Friday morning ahead of the procedure. It is the same hospital where the Princess of Wales is being cared for following abdominal surgery.

Camilla told people inside The London Clinic on Friday that the King was ‘doing well’ after the procedure.

Charles took time to visit his daughter-in-law, Kate, who is on the 12th day of her hospital stay after undergoing a successful major operation last week.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman previously said the King was ‘admitted to a London hospital for scheduled treatment’.

The spokesman added: ‘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.’

What is benign prostate enlargement? 

Benign prostate enlargement is a common condition in men aged over 50, and can affect urination.

It sees the prostate, a small gland located in the pelvis that forms part of the male reproductive system, grow in size. How exactly it becomes enlarged is unknown, but doctors believe it is linked to hormonal changes in men as they get older.

It is known as ‘benign prostate enlargement’ to distinguish it from prostate cancer, which is a malignant condition requiring urgent treatment. 

While many men experience no issues as a result of an enlarged prostate, others may need medical interventions if it puts pressure on the bladder or the urethra; it also carries a risk of a urinary tract infection.

Sometimes, it can be treated by making lifestyle changes, or with medicines; but surgery can also be carried out to remove part of the prostate or to shrink the gland.

It is not known how long Charles will spend in hospital but reports suggest he could remain there over the weekend.

The King arrived back in London from Norfolk on Thursday afternoon, ready for the procedure after squeezing in a couple of behind-the-scenes official duties.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak wished Charles the ‘very best’ for his treatment and a ‘speedy recovery’ afterwards, a Downing Street spokeswoman said.

The King was diagnosed with the benign condition on January 17 while staying at Birkhall, Aberdeenshire, after going for a check-up because he was experiencing symptoms.

He is understood to have wanted to share the news to encourage other men to get themselves checked.

Charles, who acceded to throne only 16 months ago, cancelled engagements and was urged to rest by his doctors ahead of the corrective procedure. The exact nature of the 75-year-old’s treatment is not known.

NHS England said the ‘enlarged prostate’ page on the NHS website received one visit every five seconds on the day the King’s diagnosis was announced, with further huge boosts in visits in the days that followed.

The Queen had previously said her husband is ‘fine’ and looking forward to getting back to work.

News of his diagnosis came on the same day that Kensington Palace announced the princess was in hospital after undergoing abdominal surgery.

Kate, 42, is not expected to carry out official engagements until after Easter, with the Prince of Wales clearing his diary of official duties for the time being.
