    Richard O'Sullivan

    It's more a private members' club than a care home, is it not? He remains one of the greatest British actors of his era. Not for his acting ability, which was what it was (and what was needed back then), but for never knowingly not bedding at least one of his co-stars in every performance!

    A new stent?

    Former pro-wrestler? Wouldn't be so sure! His most recent bout was in November 2018!

    Imagine one gets a better class of infection in a private hospital than an NHS outfit.

    I'd like to see it going to court...because as soon as the Queen walked into the court, the judge would have to vacate the bench on the basis they are representing the Crown and there can't be two crowns. And you're not going to see a case of Regina v Regina's Son any time soon. Not to mention, all else aside, hospital visiting rules are set by individual trusts or, in the case of private hospitals, the hospital. At worst, the rules of a hospital have been broken. But this hospital's website makes clear visitors are not entirely banned.

    She holds Australian citizenship but I don't think occupation is on their passports either.

    He told him his will makes clear he isn't his father and his half-brother Andrew is heir to the throne?

    Perhaps we are looking at this wrong. Charles was there for a short time because he was letting Philip know the Queen is dead!

    Does seem quick. Does the next of kin have to formally identify the deceased in the event of a hospital death?

    Harry is a much, much closer likeness to Philip than James Hewitt. And he has the colouring of his mother's side of the family. I have more belief in the claims Andrew is the result of an affair between the Queen and Lord Porchester, in all honesty.

    As much as he is easy to take the piss out of, his wartime service was much, much more than "just being there" - especially his actions during the invasion of Italy. Probably would have risen very high up the Royal Navy if he didn't have to give it up. Also...how many other living people are there who were at the Japanese surrender ceremony as a commissioned officer? He's also in the line of succession to the British throne as a descendent of Sophie of Hanover, but a long, long way down it (and about 100th when he was born).

    Because Captain Tom would have made a full and complete recovery from *checks notes* double pneumonia at the age of 100 if he hadn't caught Covid... I also imagine infection control is much easier at the sort of hospital senior royals use, too.

    British soldiers, to be precise, and there was a photograph of the chap in a Celtic shirt in front of an Irish flag. No better or worse than the average Saturday at Parkhead.

    If I had spent Christmas with Cliff and Russ Abbot, I'd probably be dead by now...
