By John Kelly


PRINCE William was taken to hospital after being struck down by the tropical disease bilharzia.

Bodyguards accompanied Wills, 21, a student at St Andrews University, to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee on Friday night after he said he felt unwell.

He is thought to have a low level of the condition but was immediately prescribed tablets of the drug Praziquantel, which has a 90 per cent success rate, our sister paper the Daily Record reveals today.

Wills caught the disease - which infects around 200million people a year and kills 20,000 - on his month long safari in Africa, where it is common among travellers.

Symptons include fever, headache, cough and diarrhoea. Other physical signs include a tender, enlarged liver and spleen.

It is a parasitic infection caused by a type of worm that lives in rivers or streams and is often caught by swimming.



ILL: William caught disease in Africa

William went whitewater rafting on the Nile and spent three days at Bujagali Falls in Uganda.

But royal insiders stressed last night that he is not in danger.

Buckingham Palace said he had blood tests after coming back from his trip in August.

A spokeswoman said: "When William was in Africa he picked up bilharzia.

"He returned from Africa and was feeling unwell. He went for a blood test and the specialists say he had bilharzia.

"Prince William has a very low level of the disease and all he has to do is take the tablets and everything will be fine. It was a routine appointment and he got everything dealt with."

William was joined in Africa by 11 friends, including former Guards officer Mark Dyer, and Scotland Yard protection officers.

The spokeswoman added: "Everybody who went on the trip with him will also be checked for the disease because it is very common in that part of Africa."

William has spent several holidays on the sprawling 45,000 acre nature reserve in the foothills of Mount Kenya run by close family friends Jane and Ian Craig.

William has told his father and the Queen that the Bujagali Falls - where he is believed to have picked up the disease - are among the safest in the world for whitewater rafting.

He loves Africa so much he has told Prince Charles he wants to live there for two years when he graduates.

He recently said he has been trying to learn Swahili in his spare time.

I can&#39;t understand why Diana&#39;s son&#39;s haven&#39;t pushed for an inquest, unless they already know something for sure that the rest of us don&#39;t. There&#39;s too many weird things about that accident to just accept its conclusions for an explanation of a loved one&#39;s death.

From: http://www.mirror.co.uk/columnists/suecarroll/

They were, quite simply, her life." How sad, then, that these young men who were her pride and joy don&#39;t carry a torch for Diana but seem, like their father, able to consign her memory to history.

Sure, we&#39;ve had a few, diffident words dragged out of William when he deigned to grant an interview on his birthday but, er, that&#39;s it. When asked to open a memorial to her in Kensington, he turned down the offer. What do they think of the garden planned for her in Hyde Park? We don&#39;t know, they&#39;ve never said.
.......................................
Meanwhile, here&#39;s a tip for William who said last week that he and his brother "are more able to speak for our mother than Paul".

Start talking.

I wonder if dragging their &#39;dirty laundry&#39; out in public, so to speak, might be a factor.
While speculation, gossip and rumor can be damaging it&#39;s not nearly as damaging as finding out who/what really caused it.
Maybe the boys are trying to preserve their mothers memory and protect the family name???
just a thought

This is reasonable except that it doesn&#39;t explain the reluctance of Diana&#39;s sons to preserve their mothers memory in tangible ways, such as in memorials or tributes.

I suspect that C/C have made it impossible for William or Harry to say or do anything nice concerning their mother.

Wills And Beyonce To Meet In London, Hello Magazine

Prince William will finally get his chance to meet R&B diva Beyonce when she plays in London next week. The handsome royal has requested tickets for her concert at Wembley Arena, and organisers have arranged for him to meet the singer back-stage.

Back in July, Beyonce met Wills&#39; father at the Prince&#39;s Trust Party In The Park. She was somewhat taken aback, however, when Charles revealed that Wills had a crush on her. "I went red in the face and couldn&#39;t believe it," said the 22-year-old. "I&#39;m sure William can&#39;t believe his father said that and I&#39;m sure Charles will be in trouble when he gets home."

But the incident obviously hasn&#39;t dampened his desire to meet the Destiny&#39; Child chanteuse. Wills had hoped to see her perform in Glasgow on Tuesday night, but his college commitments at St Andrews made that impossible. He asked tour organisers to arrange tickets for her gig in London, therefore, and is expected to attend with a group of friends.

"I&#39;m thrilled – Wills is very good looking," said Beyonce. There&#39;s not much chance of romance, however, as the Texan belle is already "crazy in love" with rapper Jay-Z.

Prince William partied at a Pizza Express in Fulham with THREE blondes.

Restaurant staff opened a downstairs area specially for the 21-year-old royal after he asked management for a private spot.

But later, as his entourage went out for a night on the town, Wills was pictured leaving alone for an early night.

Wills Becomes the Prince of Clubland

25 NOVEMBER 2003
Like many other British 21-year-olds, Prince William is a big fan of London clubland. But when it came to becoming a member of one of the capital&#39;s nightspots, Wills eschewed the pounding dancefloors of the city&#39;s best-known venues for something a little more refined.

The world&#39;s most eligible bachelor has applied to become a member of White&#39;s, the most exclusive gentleman&#39;s club in London. In so doing he follows in the footsteps of his father, Prince Charles, who held his stag night there more than two decades ago.

According to member Tom Stacey, those hoping to join require a proposer and two seconders before their application will be considered. Their name will then "sit around in a book for a while, collecting signatures, until it has about 35", reveals Tom. And there is also a membership fee of £850, though none of these requirements should prove too difficult for Wills.

White&#39;s has its origins in the early 18th century, when its gaming room, known simply as "Hell", became popular with young London aristocrats. Such was the establishment&#39;s reputation that the then Earl Of Oxford called it "the bain of half the English nobility". Since then, however it has become a veritable pillar of London society.

Gentleman&#39;s clubs are enjoying something of a renaissance in well-to-do circles of British society. In recent years young aristocrats, who have long been turning their backs on gentlemen-only bars, have been making a return to this bastion of British tradition.

Women&#39;s only clubs are endogenous to the species. That&#39;s why men are so jealous.

Prince William and his grandmother, The Queen, posing with the captains of the English Rugby team at a tea and reception The Queen hosted for them at Buckingham Palace. Dec. 8, 2003. To me, this is a sign that Prince William is steadily begining to move more into his royal role, and it&#39;s great to see him at an official function.

Finally some new pictures and news on William, although it doesn&#39;t really surprise me that he made a point of attending a reception for a sports team. Anyway, it&#39;s always good to see him, and I can&#39;t wait until Christmas when there is more news, and more pictures&#33;
