The health statements from King Charles and Kate Middleton were made around hours of each other’s, but with some significant differences. Statement released from Buckingham Palace, The King would be having surgery for an enlarged prostate, just after two hours, Kensington Palace revealed, Princess Kate’s “planned abdominal surgery” on January 17.
The King’s announcement encouraged other men to get their tests done. His scheduled public engagements will be temporarily postponed due to a planned remedial surgery for the benign disease this week.
Charles made his statement prior to his scheduled operation, but Kate’s health news was disclosed until after her surgery. As many could have assumed the worst, it seemed to make sense to be more transparent about it, a palace insider exclusively announced.
Since Charles is a monarch, his health is very important. Additionally, his choice to make his diagnosis public has already had an effect: On the UK’s National Health Service website, searches for prostate enlargement increased by 1,000% following his declaration a few days earlier.
While King Charles made his illness public, Princess Kate, 42, made the decision to keep it private. According to her office, she expressed a “desire to maintain as much normality” as possible for her young children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5.
Princess Kate’s scheduled stomach surgery was considered successful, and a royal source reports that she is “doing well.” However, there have been worries voiced about her 10 to 14 day hospital stay and her expected three-month recuperation at home. Although the palace has not revealed the specifics of her health, they have stated that it is not malignant.
“The Princess of Wales is thankful for all the prayers”. In a statement released by the palace, she expressed her hope that the public would respect her intention to keep her children’s lives as normal as possible and to keep her personal medical information private.
For Kate primary focus is her family. Insider revealed that she organized the events and trips according to their children’s school.
