LONDON (AP) — Buckingham Palace says Prince Charles will take three days off next week to try to shake a persistent chest infection.

The Prince of Wales, who is the heir to the British throne, has been suffering from the infection for more than a month and doctors have advised him to take some time off.

Charles, 61, will miss the Royal Ascot horse race June 15 and a formal procession in Windsor that takes place the day before.

The palace said Monday that Charles would resume his official duties June 17.
