Prince Charles' wife, Camilla, underwent a hysterectomy at London's King Edward VII hospital on Monday and is expected to remain hospitalised for the rest of the week.

"The Duchess of Cornwall had her operation this morning and is recovering well," said a statement released by Prince Charles' office, the Associated Press reported.

There are a number of reasons for doing a hysterectomy, including cancer, menstrual problems, abnormal growths or complications following birth. Camilla's operation was not the result of cancer, but Prince Charles' office did not provide any more details. It's expected that his wife will require six weeks of recuperation.

She and Prince Charles recently returned home after a 10-day tour of the Mideast, the AP reported. – (HealthDayNews)
