Major Kate Middleton security 'breach' as hospital staff 'attempted to view private medical records'

March 20, 2024

At least one member of staff was said to have been caught trying to access the 42-year-old’s notes. One insider revealed: “This is a major security breach and incredibly damaging for the hospital, given its unblemished reputation for treating members of the Royal Family. Senior hospital bosses contacted Kensington Palace immediately after the incident was brought to their attention and assured the palace there would be a full investigation. It is a criminal offence for any staff in an NHS or private healthcare setting to access the medical records of a patient without the consent of the organisation’s data controller. The HCPC has a duty of confidentiality to both complainants and our registrants.”The private 56-room hospital opened in 1932.
