LATEST: British royal CAMILLA, DUCHESS OF CORNWALL, has left a London hospital after a successful hysterectomy operation. Prince Charles picked up his second wife from the British capital's King Edward VII hospital and brought her home to their London residence Clarence House. A spokeswoman for the couple said the 59-year-old was "recovering well". Camilla was admitted to hospital late on Sunday night (04MAR07) and has been ordered to rest for up to six weeks to recover properly. A hysterectomy involves total or partial removal of the womb and is carried out if the patient has fibroids in the uterus, cancer or suffers from heavy or irregular periods.
