Ahead of his treatment, Charles visited 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”.

“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,” the spokesman added.

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

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