The Palace have said he is in “good spirits” although there is no update on his condition. Charles’s visit on Saturday, which saw him take a 200 mile round trip from his home in Gloucestershire. Was apparently due to his father’s prolonged stay. No other members of the Royal Family have visited. Although police and security guards remain at the hospital.
Sources have said he will remain in hospital for rest and observation “for a few days”. The Prince, who turns 100 in June, is in hospital for an “undisclosed reason”. However, the Palace have said it is not “COVID related”.
Royal author Penny Junor said. “We do all know he doesn’t like fuss, and he would regard a visit as fuss.” She added “Momentous things are happening in the family at the moment. And I suppose it’s perfectly possible that Charles wanted to go and talk to his father and reassure him about Harry.” The hospital said that visitors will “only be considered in exceptional circumstances”.
