I’m leaning more and more towards Charles not thinking about the possible reactions. Personally, I’m leaning towards this visit having been unnecessary and that video chat would have been a more than viable option. This was a mess on Saturday and is another kind of mess now. Sorry, not sorry, but Charles should have stayed home.
Obviously I could be wrong about Philip’s condition, but hopefully not.
Update...I'll pulled this from the hospital's website (https://www.kingedwardvii...mation/visiting-a-patient
To protect our patients we need to limit visitors to our hospital. We recommend virtual visits where possible. Visitors will only be considered in exceptional circumstances,
where one visitor will be permitted to visit. No children will be permitted to visit. The health, safety and well-being of our patients, family, carers and staff remain our absolute priority.
Permission for visiting must be discussed directly with Matron’s Office, and would be allowed under the following circumstances:
- One regular carer will be allowed for patients with additional needs e.g. dementia, learning disabilities. They will be swabbed to allow them to continue with caring commitments.
- For patients receiving end of life care.
As Charles is clearly not the former everyone is jumping to the latter, especially with CH is insisting that the visit was "fully complainant". And if it was the later you'd think that Charles would be staying in London rather than returning to Highgrove, and probably visiting again.
Unless by "fully complainant" they mean things like social distancing, mask wearing, and proper hygiene took place during the visit.
