Royal news – live: Prince Harry and Meghan ‘send get well message’ to King Charles and Kate


King Charles to undergo surgery next week for enlarged prostate

Prince Harry and Meghan have lent their support to King Charles and the Princess of Wales following their respective health scares.

The couple reportedly reached out as Kate spends her sixth day recovering from abdominal surgery at the London Clinic and King Charles prepares to undergo treatment for his enlarged prostate.

A source told The Mirror: “The King and the Princess of Wales have received support from Prince Harry and Meghan regarding their health. The Duke and Duchess contacted both parties in different ways to pass on their concern and best wishes.”

Kate is said to be “doing well” but will remain in the exclusive clinic for between 10 to 14 days, and is not expected to return to official duties until after Easter.

It comes after The Telegraph revealed Harry may have been informed of the King’s enlarged prostate via a news alert as it was 7.25am in California.

The royals informed all the senior members of the Royal family, including Prince Harry, before broadcasting the news, say the publication. They reached out to the palace and the Sussex’s who declined to comment.

Surge in men checking cancer risk after King’s prostate diagnosis, says charity

News of the King’s enlarged prostate diagnosis has seen thousands of men checking to see if they are at risk of prostate cancer, new figures suggest.

NHS England said that since Charles shared his diagnosis, the “enlarged prostate” page on the NHS website has received 26,170 visits in 48 hours, including another 9,760 visits on Thursday, compared with a daily average of 1,400 visits earlier in the week.

And Prostate Cancer UK has also seen a big rise in the number of people using its online risk checker.

According to the charity, on Thursday there were 8,025 risk checks, of which 6,800 were noted as high risk.

The figures represent an increase of 101% on the previous day (3,993), and up 139% on the previous week.

One in every three men over the age of 50 will have symptoms of an enlarged prostate including needing to visit the toilet more frequently, with more urgency and have difficulty emptying their bladder.

An enlarged prostate does not usually pose a serious threat to health, and it is not cancer.

Harry recalls John Travolta’s dance with Diana as he asks to ‘fly together’

The Duke of Sussex told John Travolta it would be fitting for them to fly together after recalling how the actor famously danced with his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, more than three decades ago.

Harry made the comments in his speech at the Living Legends of Aviation ceremony in Los Angeles hosted by aviation ambassador Travolta, 69, hours after it was claimed he learned of King Charles’s health condition via a news alert.

Diana, who died following a car crash in 1997, took to the dance floor with Grease star Travolta during a dinner at the White House in 1985.

During the event, where he was recognised for his work as a British Army veteran and pilot, Harry told Travolta: “I was just a one-year-old when you danced with my mum at the White House, and now look at us. The only thing left to do is… not dance together but fly together.”

Full report: Prince Harry drops libel case against Daily Mail after damaging pretrial ruling

Prince Harry on Friday dropped his libel lawsuit against the publisher of the Daily Mail tabloid following a ruling in which a judge cast doubt on his case.

Lawyers for the Duke of Sussex told the High Court in London that he was withdrawing the suit against Associated Newspapers Ltd.

No reason was given, but it came the day he was due to hand over documents in the case and after a punishing ruling last month in which a judge ordered Harry to pay the publisher nearly 50,000 pounds in legal fees after he failed to achieve victory without going to trial.

Prince Harry may have been unaware of King’s condition

Prince Harry may not have been informed about King Charle’s enlarged prostate before the news was announced to the public, say the Telegraph.

The announcement was made in the UK at 3.25pm which is 7.25am in the Duke of Sussex’s Californian home, and the Prince may have been informed via a news alert, the paper understands.

It was early in the morning for Prince Harry when the announcement was made so he could have missed direct messages, report the Telegraph.

The royals informed all the senior members of the Royal family, including Prince Harry, before broadcasting the news, say the publication.

The publication reached out to the palace and the Sussex’s who declined to comment.

King Charles’ ‘concern’ for hospitalised Princess of Wales

King Charles will have spoken to the Princess of Wales as she recovers in hospital and will not want her back at work “any sooner than she feels she needs,” according to his biographer.

Robert Hardman told Newsweek he believed Charles will have been in touch with Kate since the operation: “Yes, I would certainly have thought so. He’s a huge fan of hers. He thinks she’s a great asset. He’ll be more worried than anyone other than Prince William about her.

“She’s fit, she’s young and she’s out of action for three months. That’s a cause for concern, not alarm, but he’ll definitely be taking the view ‘for God’s sake don’t make her feel she’s got to come back to duties any sooner than she feels she needs to.”

Who in the royal family is out of action?

With the King due in hospital next week for corrective treatment for his benign condition and William – the next in line to the throne – and Kate out of action for the immediate future, Charles’s slimmed down monarchy – with three of the most senior royals missing – has been put under pressure in a way not seen before during his reign.

Joe Little, of Majesty magazine, said the health troubles have compounded the problem facing the small band of working royals.

Mr Little said: “The working members of the royal family have been under pressure to maintain the level of engagements undertaken by a much larger team in years gone by.

“Suddenly removing three of the most senior players because of health issues compounds the problem considerably, but at least the King will be out of action for only a relatively short period.”

The Queen is still carrying out engagements, joining the Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra as the current working monarchy – with the latter two appearing increasingly frail in recent years.

Who else has been treated at the London Clinic

The Princess of Wales is spending her fifth day in the London Clinic after receiving a visit from her husband the Prince of Wales.

The London Clinic is the largest independent, private hospital in the country and was opened by Queen Elizabeth’s parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, when they were known as the Duke and Duchess of York in 1932.

A group of leading medical specialists united to plan a new facility with the highest specifications for medical and building standards, and there have been various royal ties to the facility ever since.

Queen Elizabeth’s uncle the Duke of Windsor had an eye operation at the clinic in 1960, and Queen Elizabeth’s sister Princess Margaret was treated there to have a benign skin lesion removed in 1980.

Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth’s husband of 73 years, had abdominal surgery at the London Clinic in June 2013 and remained there for 11 days, the BBC reported.

King Charles diagnosis could lead to more men checking their prostate

The King has returned to Sandringham, ready to undergo treatment for an enlarged prostate next week.

Ian Eardley, consultant urological surgeon in Leeds and national clinical director for NHS England, said the condition becomes more common with age and will affect up to four in five men aged 75.

“It’s very, very common, at that age you would expect upwards of 70 per cent to 80 per cent of men to have an enlarged prostate”, he told MailOnline.

“About half of them will have symptoms, and broadly speaking about half of them will become bothered to some extent by those symptoms.

“To some extent it is an inevitable part of ageing for just about all men.

“The nature of these things if it becomes public knowledge it will lead to more men seeking help. That’s a good thing.”
