Lorraine Kelly takes swipe at royals as she calls out ’embarrassing’ security breach

Lorraine Kelly said the Royal Family have not handled recent controversy about them “particularly well” as she discussed the latest headlines surrounding the Princess of Wales on Wednesday. Police are currently investigating claims that an attempt to look up Kate’s medical records was made at the London Clinic.

The mother-of-three took a break from her work commitments to undergo planned abdominal surgery at the Marylebone hospital in January and has been in recovery since. Kensington Palace did not disclose exactly why she had undergone the operation and that she had requested privacy concerning her medical history.

Alongside The Mirror’s Russell Myers and Dr Amir Khan, Lorraine discussed the alleged breach which she branded “embarrassing” for the clinic. Lorraine added: “Privacy is paramount for all of us, so this is extremely embarrassing for the London clinic isn’t it?”

Russell chimed in saying as well as embarrassing, it was “hugely damaging” for the clinic’s reputation, who have treated several members of the Royal Family including King Charles and the late Queen.

Turning to the doctor, Lorraine then asked: “Should we all be worried?” Mr Khan reassured her that there was a data protection act that all hospital staff would be aware of and that those allegedly breaching the rules could face “displincary action”.

He also stressed that all members of the Royal Family had the right to privacy like the rest of us.

Following more recent controversy about Kate, including whether or not it was her in a video at a farm shop in Windsor this week, the presenter went on to take issue with the handling of it all.

She shared: “They’ve not handled it particularly well, either the royals themselves or the people advising them.

“It’s not been handled all that well but no one can feel anything but sympathy towards Kate at this point, you do wonder when it’s all going to end?”
