Queen Camilla has taken the helm to steer the ship of the royal family in full swing while King Charles is resting following his correction surgery for an enlarged prostate.

According to PEOPLE, the 76-year-old queen was seen out and about on Wednesday morning as she stepped out to visit Maggie’s Royal Free to officially inaugurate the new cancer facility.

While gracing the opening of the new cancer support center at the Royal Free Hospital in London she was asked about the monarch’s health.

Royal correspondent Richard Palmer reported on X, formerly known as Twitter that Camilla replied, "He’s getting on, doing his best."

The queen was warmly greeted at the new space by Maggie's executives Dame Laura Lee and Stuart Gulliver, architect Daniel Libeskind, and Royal Free London representatives.

She also met the architectural team who contributed to bringing the new space to life.

The outing, which came before World Cancer Day, to be held on Sunday, February 4, marked the queen’s 17th visit to Maggie’s Center in the U.K.

She became patron of Maggie’s Centre in 2008, providing free support and expert care to anyone navigating through cancer.

The queen’s morning visit to Royal Free Hospital was her second solo outing in a row as she returned to work the day after her husband was discharged from the London Clinic on Friday.

The royal couple seemed to be in high spirits as they headed out of the hospital, King Charles even waved to the well-wishers standing and waiting outside the hospital.

Following his surgery, Buckingham Palace released a statement that read, "The king was this afternoon discharged from hospital following planned medical treatment and has rescheduled forthcoming public engagements to allow for a period of private recuperation."
