A royal author and friend of Prince Philip has revealed that Queen Elizabeth II suffered from bone marrow cancer before she died on September 8. Allegedly, nobody told Prince Harry about this news, because nobody seemed to confide in him and his wife Meghan Markle with this important information.
Queen Elizabeth’s alleged cancer had the most common symptom: bone pain. That could have to do with her announced mobility issues, which have often been cited as her medical concern.
In Gyles Brandreth’s forthcoming book, Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait, the royal expert details the late monarch’s alleged health problems. In an article in the Daily Mail, he wrote about the news that Her Majesty was suffering from a form of myeloma, or bone marrow cancer, which could have contributed to her fatigue, weight loss and mobility problems.
It’s normal for people with myeloma to have bone pain, particularly in the pelvis and lower back. Multiple myeloma is also a disease that often affects older people.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for this disease, although there are treatments and medications that regulate the immune system and prevent bone weakening. These can help reduce the severity of symptoms and add months or years to patients’ survival.
In connection with the diagnosis, Brandreth claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not informed about Queen Elizabeth’s health issue. Kinsey Schofield, founder and creator of the To Di for Daily podcast, believed they weren’t trusted with the message, according to the Express.
In the final episode of the podcast, he claimed in a TalkTV segment with Cristo Foufas that Brandreth had received permission from the royal family to publish Queen Elizabeth’s cancer diagnosis in his book. So it would no longer be groundbreaking news if the Duke of Sussex included it in his upcoming memoir, Spare.
Schofield called the move smart, and perhaps the royal family wanted to control how this big reveal would be released. Prince Harry’s controversial book is set to be released on January 10th.
But Amazon is already giving it away for free, a bold move for the retailer. Royalty fans and anyone who wants to get their hands on the book should take advantage of this discount when they sign up for a free trial of Audible, Amazon’s audiobook app.
However, they have to cancel the free trial to ensure they won’t be billed for the audiobook when it’s officially released. The printed copy of Prince Harry’s Spare is also available at a big discount: instead of £28 it can be purchased for just £14.
