The King looked great as he waved to crowds six days after being discharged from The London Clinic

King Charles waved to the crowd as he was spotted back out and about following his surgery.

The King, 75, and Queen Camilla, 76, attended a Sunday church service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham today.

This comes six days after King Charles was discharged from The London Clinic, following corrective surgery for an enlarged prostate.

The monarch was admitted to the same hospital where Princess Kate was recuperating, on Friday, January 26.

On January 17, Buckingham Palace released a statement confirming the monarch would undergo surgery.

The statement read: "In common with thousands of men each year, The King has sought treatment for an enlarged prostate.

"His Majesty's condition is benign and he will attend hospital next week for a corrective procedure.

"The King’s public engagements will be postponed for a short period of recuperation."

On Monday, January 29, the King was photographed leaving The London Clinic beside his wife, Queen Camilla.

This came as the Queen was frequently updating royal fans with how the King was feeling following his operation.

Every working day this week Queen Camilla has performed a royal engagement, where she would inform the public about her husband's convalescence.

For example, during an engagement in Scotland, Camilla said: “He’s fine, thank you very much. Looking forward to getting back to work.”

King Charles was not the only member of the Royal Family to announce a health concern in recent weeks.

The Princess of Wales, 42, underwent "planned abdominal surgery" on January 16 and spent a further 13 days recuperating in hospital.

Similarly, Sarah, Duchess of York's spokesperson announced that the former working royal had been diagnosed with skin cancer.

This was Fergie's second cancer diagnosis within a year, having undergone a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery for breast cancer in 2023.
