King Charles Medical Records Not Involved With Kate Middleton Security Breach

Business as usual. King Charles’ medical files were not breached alongside Kate Middleton‘s at a London hospital. The breach comes weeks after Kate Middleton’s surgery and King Charles’ diagnosis.

Daily Mail was the first to report that Charles’ files were not involved when a staff member of the London Clinic tried to access Kate’s files. A source told The Mirror that the hospital was shocked about a staff member trying to access Kate Middleton’s medical records. “This is a major security breach and incredibly damaging for the hospital, given its unblemished reputation for treating members of the Royal Family,” the source said.

“Senior hospital bosses contacted Kensington Palace immediately after the incident was brought to their attention and assured the palace there would be a full investigation. The whole medical staff have been left utterly shocked and distraught over the allegations and were very hurt that a trusted colleague could have possibly been responsible for such a breach of trust and ethics.”

In a statement, the hospital told the UK-based publication“We firmly believe that all our patients, no matter their status, deserve total privacy and confidentiality regarding their medical information.”

The London Clinic’s CEO Al Russell told People, “Everyone at The London Clinic is acutely aware of our individual, professional, ethical and legal duties with regards to patient confidentiality. We take enormous pride in the outstanding care and discretion we aim to deliver for all our patients that put their trust in us every day. We have systems in place to monitor management of patient information and, in the case of any breach, all appropriate investigatory, regulatory and disciplinary steps will be taken. There is no place at our hospital for those who intentionally breach the trust of any of our patients or colleagues.”

In January 2024, King Charles was admitted to a hospital for a routine procedure to treat an enlarged prostate. But less than two weeks after the operation, Buckingham Palace announced that doctors discovered the monarch had “a form of cancer” following additional tests. “His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties,” the palace shared in a statement on February 5, 2024. “Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.”
