Charles was seen leaving the London Clinic on Monday after spending three nights there following his procedure, according to BBC News and Sky News. The 75-year-old monarch, who was with his wife Queen Camilla, smiled and waved at people gathered outside the hospital before leaving.

Buckingham Palace officials said Jan. 17 that Charles would undergo a “corrective procedure” to treat an enlarged prostate. The condition, which is more common as men age, causes the urethra to narrow and decreases urine flow, according to the National Institute on Aging and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

He was admitted to the hospital Friday.

The king was discharged on the same day that Catherine, the Princess of Wales, was released form the London Clinic following abdominal surgery. Officials did not specify what prompted the surgery, which is expected to keep her out of the public eye until at least Easter.
