of King George V and therefore The Queen’s first cousin. He often steps in for Her Majesty on official visits as her representative.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman has said

[the Duke of Kent] hopes to be out of hospital in the next few days … his programme has been either postponed or cancelled for the next three weeks
