In a statement, Buckingham Palace said that the King "has rescheduled forthcoming public engagements to allow for a period of private recuperation."

He was admitted on Friday for his scheduled surgery, and upon his admittance, the Palace said, "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."
