This comes as his daughter-in-law, Princess of Wales, is also taking time off from public duties after undergoing successful abdominal surgery, as she is expected to remain in hospital for 10 to 14 days before returning home.

The princess is likely to spend between two and three months recuperating and is not expected to return to public duties until after Easter based on current medical advice, the Palace said.
