The King is “fine” as he prepares to undergo treatment for an enlarged prostate this week, the Queen has told a member of the public during a visit in Swindon.
Camilla visited Deacon and Sons, a 175-year-old family run jewellery shop, in Swindon on Monday afternoon.
Among those outside hoping to catch a glimpse of the Queen was 86-year-old Jessie Jackson, from Swindon, who said Camilla told her the King “is fine”.
Jackson said she shook the Queen’s hand and asked her how Charles was doing.
Camilla thanked her for asking and Jackson added: “She’s lovely.”
