Wessex baby faces surgery to save sight

NICHOLAS CHRISTIAN


THE baby daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex is set to have an operation to save her eyesight.

A rare condition, called exotropia, could leave six-month-old Louise blind in one eye unless surgeons can correct the defect.

Louise, who was born a month premature in an emergency Caesarean which threatened the life of her mother, is to undergo rigorous tests before specialists can perform the risky procedure.

Prince Edward and his bride Sophie first noticed that something might be wrong when Louise developed a pronounced squint soon after being born.

It is understood that the Queen has been informed and has offered her personal support to her grandson and his wife.

Louise has already had a tough time since she came into the world after a traumatic birth that at one stage threatened Sophie’s life.

Exotropia causes one eye to deviate from its normal position and look outwards, affecting the sufferer’s ability to focus. In some cases it leads to blindness.

A royal source said yesterday: "The squint is very noticeable and is causing the Wessexes huge concern. No one wants to see their child undergo an operation and Louise has already had a tough time coming into the world."

A few hours before Louise’s birth, Sophie collapsed at the couple’s home at Bagshot Park in Surrey.

In the subsequent confusion, there was a 30-minute delay before she was rushed to the nearby NHS Frimley Park Hospital.

There she underwent life-saving surgery to stop the haemorrhaging, during which doctors said she lost an estimated nine pints of blood before Louise was born at the fragile weight of just 4lb 9oz.

Edward and Sophie have been preparing for Louise’s christening at the private chapel at Windsor Castle on April 24.

Exclusive interviews with Prince Philip and his son, Prince Edward

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award, which started in 1956 in the U.K., was the brainchild of Prince Philip. Since the award came to Canada 40 years ago, more than 200,000 Canadians have participated. Some 30,000 participate each year. The award now operates in over 100 countries worldwide. Today, Prince Edward runs the award program for his father.

Smith also speaks to past and present award participants. Toronto Mayor David Miller received his gold award in high school. Currently finishing up their gold awards are 18-year-old Asim Zaidi from Mississauga, Ont., who has cerebral palsy, and 18-year-old Cynthia Dawe from St. John's, Nfld.

To obtain a Duke of Edinburgh's Award, youth between the ages of 14-25 must complete activities in four categories: physical fitness, skills, community service and expeditions. There are three levels of achievement: gold, silver and bronze.

In the past several years in Canada, the award program has expanded to reach youth considered "at-risk," targeting aboriginal, rural and inner-city youth; young offenders; and those with disabilities.

Prince Philip will be in Toronto on April 26 to attend a gala fundraising dinner to celebrate the Award's 40th anniversary in Canada.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex will be representing the queen at the Danish royal wedding. The Duke of Kent, 68, is unlikely to be sent to the wedding. Prince William does not yet undertake official engagements, and won't until after his university degree. Moreover, if you look at St. Andrews' calendar, you will see that this is the time for revision and exams ... so William is busy doing other things.

Edward and Sophie are closer in age, and are good friends with Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra. Edward is a godfather to Prince Nikolai, so it makes perfect sense for the Wessexes to attend this wedding.
