The Prince of Wales cited personal reasons

GB News host Andrew Pierce has sent well wishes to Prince William after he pulled out of a memorial service.

The Prince of Wales cited personal reasons as he announced he would not be attending King Constantine’s memorial service.

He was due to give a reading at St George’s Chapel but it emerged he was no longer able to attend.

Andrew admitted he was concerned about the Prince after the development as he sent his well wishes.

“This is going to fuel all sorts of lurid speculation”, he said.

“The Princess of Wales is sick, the King has got cancer, has he got health issues? Is it the children?


“I hope he’s alright, I hope everything is OK.”

Fellow GB News host Tom Harwood outlined why the move is such an “odd” one during the discussion.

“I think if he’d pulled out a week or so in advance, with something unavoidable, that would be a different kettle of fish”, he said.

“It’s very last minute and usually perhaps for this Royal Family which has been more open about a lot of the issues it’s facing.

Prince William's health was discussed on GB News


“In previous decades the Royal Family has been a lot more closed but we’re not getting any information about this.”

Kate is away from official royal engagements until after Easter following major surgery in January.

The King is also missing the service as he continues treatment for an undisclosed form of cancer.

Charles, who has been staying at Windsor Castle, is due to leave the Berkshire residence at some point on Tuesday morning.

Dozens of foreign royals travelled to Windsor to attend the service but the King is not expected to meet them privately.

Constantine’s eldest son Crown Prince Pavlos is to step in to give the reading in William’s place.

The Duke of York led family members including his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York, Princess Beatrice, the Princess Royal and Zara and Mike Tindall, who arrived at the chapel after being driven to the castle quadrangle by coach.
