Really bad news. I think it serious.

Thoughts with Alexandra. After Edward's stroke and now Alexandra's ill health, it becomes clear that the Queen's cousins are aging and will be slowing down. They deserve a rest really, they have worked hard for a long time.

I agree. Then again, we are learning that HRH The Duke of Kent will be making a 3-day trip to Ireland next week.

The Kents are made of strong stuff, as evident by the 3 day trip to Ireland for The Duke next week after a stroke a few weeks back.

Since it's Princess Alexandra's Wedding Anniversary, I decided to post this video of the Royal Wedding of 1963:

Hope she gets better, suspected ill health as she has always been a hard working member of the RF.

I have a number of friends with this condition and it is painful although two of them still work full-time as teachers - no option as they need the money. Others still live their lives to the full but take the medication and eat properly and simply manage the pain.

I'm hoping her treatment is going well and she will at least be okay, even though her official engagements are cancelled.

She will be fine - this isn't life-threatening. It is painful but totally manageable - as I said I have a number of friends with this condition including two who work full-time and they take their medication and eat right and are doing fine (one actually thinks they are over reacting by cancelling her engagements because he says there is no reason to stop working as your aren't 'ill' but just have a painful condition - but he has had diabetes all his life so probably sees this as just another 'condition' and therefore no reason to stop doing everything he has always done).

Perhaps it's worsened by Alexandra's age and that's the reason for cancelling her engagements? I don't know a lot about the condition but does age affect it?

These kind of things hit people in different ways but I hope everything will be okay for her. If she need to take a rest from official engagements, then she should do so.

It usually hits people over 60 - it is an age-related condition. Most of my friends with it are in their mid-70s same as Alexandra. My diabetic friend is 68 and the other teacher I work with with it turned 71 in March.

Is Princess Alexandra into alternative/natural medicine?

Maybe she shuns prescription medicines & that is why the flare up is taking longer to heal.

The disease takes a couple of years to 'heal' with the right medicine.

Hopefully Princess Alexandra feels better soon. It is always a pleasure to see her undertaking engagements.

I guess we won't be seeing her at the Coronation anniversary service. I hope she gets better soon as well.
