Security Breach: Hospital Staff Tried Accessing Kate Middleton’s Medical Records – Report

An investigation has been launched at the hospital that treated Kate Middleton for her stomach surgery in January.

According to The Mirror, a staff member at The London Clinic in Marylebone, London, attempted to illegally access the Princess of Wales’ medical information. This comes amid speculation about Kate’s condition after her operation.

When contacted by PEOPLE, a Kensington Palace representative stated, “This is a matter for The London Clinic.”

The London Clinic has not yet responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

According to The Mirror, “senior hospital bosses” informed the palace of the security violation and promised to conduct a thorough investigation.

“This is a major security breach and incredibly damaging for the hospital, given its unblemished reputation for treating members of the royal family,” a person familiar with the matter said to the newspaper. “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 did not respond to specific claims about the Princess of Wales, 42, but stated to The Mirror that all patients, regardless of status, deserve privacy and confidentiality about their medical information.

On Monday, TMZ received the first video of the princess since her January treatment. The 40-second clip, purportedly taken Saturday, shows her walking with her husband, Prince William, 41, outside Windsor Farm Shop. The location is roughly a mile from their home, Adelaide Cottage.

“Kate was out shopping with William, and she looked happy and well,” an onlooker told The Sun about their outing.

While William and Kate’s children did not accompany them on their outing, the pair spent Sunday morning seeing their children, Prince George (10), Princess Charlotte (8), and Prince Louis (5), participate in sporting activities.

Kensington Palace expressed Kate’s desire to “maintain as much normality for her children as possible” following her operation.

Kate is scheduled to resume public responsibilities after Easter, according to Kensington Palace. A recent story suggests that the Princess of Wales may prioritize her health before resuming public activities.
