The Princess of Wales’s confidentiality was allegedly breached at the hospital where she underwent abdominal surgery.

In an exclusive by The Sun, the London Clinic has launched an investigation after at least one staff member was allegedly caught trying to access her medical records.

An insider told The Sun, “This is a major security breach and incredibly damaging for the hospital, given its unblemished reputation for treating members of the Royal Family. 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 allegedly been responsible for such a breach of trust and ethics.”

The London Clinic was renowned for its discretion in treating members of the Royal Family and government officials.

While the medical institution would not comment on the claims of breach of privacy for the Princess, they did say: “We firmly believe that all our patients, no matter their status, deserve total privacy and confidentiality regarding their medical information.”

Kensington Palace did not comment and has said this is a matter for the hospital.

The Princess of Wales underwent a successful abdominal surgery at the London Clinic in January and stayed in hospital for 13 days. Kensington Palace said at the time that she would remain out of the public eye to recover and would not return to royal duties until after Easter.
