Initially admitted to the King Edward VII hospital, he was eventually transferred to St Bartholomew, where he successfully underwent surgery for an underlying heart condition.

The Prince's recovery seems to have made way for more delightful news in the royal family, who recently welcomed Mike and Zara Tindall's son, Lucas.

The newborn would be the Queen's 10th great-grandchild, making the celebration all the more glorious. Confirming the atmosphere in the family, a statement revealed that the new great-grandparents were delighted.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have also contributed their quota in commemorating the National Day of Reflection. The royal couple paid a symbolic visit to the site of their 2011 wedding, Westminster Abbey, which now serves as a new COVID-19 vaccination center.
