HM was in the hospital March 2013 overnight for "assessment of symptoms of gastroenteritis". A number of engagements were cancelled as a result.

All JMO of course.

In December 1947, General Sir Frederick Browning was appointed as Comptroller and Treasurer of the joint household of Prince Philip and Princess Elizabeth.
Philip had first met Browning in Ceylon at Christmas 1944 while staying with his uncle Louis Mountbatten, whose chief of staff Browning had just become.

Does Helen Asprey, a member of Prince William And Prince Henry's personal staff, accompany Catherine The Duchess of Cambridge to some of her engagements?

I remember seeing her at William and Kate's first engagement christening the lifeboat in Wales. There are also photos of her with Kate visiting Westminster Abbey pre wedding but she hasn't been on engagements with them for quite a while.

Royal Central @RoyalCentral 35m
The Prince of Wales is on the search for a new Communications Secretary.

Royal Central @RoyalCentral 32m
William Nye who was appointed Principal Private Secretary to Charles & Camilla in September 2011 leaves in April 2015 as well.

Martin @CourtierUK 39m
Interesting that P.Charles has both a Communications and Press Secretary, though The Queen and WK&H only have Comms Sec.

Martin @CourtierUK 42m
P.Charles is going through Comms Secretaries pretty quickly...

Anyone have a clue to what's going on behind the scenes of the royal press offices?

They are looking for the next generation of press officer.
Discreet, yet internet savvy while having the sense to hire a staff that is devoted to getting the details right (sooner rather than later).

Forget Downton Abbey and Upstairs Downstairs. This week, we have had a glimpse behind the scenes of a real-life royal household, with the news that The Queen has been advertising for someone to remove chewing gum from the floors and furniture at Holyrood House.
Her Majestys chosen cleaner must be available to prise pink goo off parquet for four hours a day, five days a week (including Sundays), on a part-time salary based on a rate of 15,912 per year.
The successful applicant will also be required to perform more conventional, less adhesive-related tasks, namely the making of royal beds and the laundering of royal linen.
Wanted: cleaner to pick chewing gum off royal floors. Republicans need not apply - Telegraph

Clarence House press office now dropped ‘Royal Communications’ from its correspondence - looks like unified press office really is no more!

Martin @CourtierUK 6m 6 minutes ago
Makes one wonder what Sally Osman’s role is now. ‘Director of Royal Communications’ - not much left to direct!

Jane Loftus, Marchioness of Ely was a lady-in-waiting to Queen Victoria.
The Queen referred to her as "Dearest Jane".

Thanks to her father's friendship with Henry VIII, and her mother's family connections and previous post as one of the ladies to both Elizabeth of York and Catherine of Aragon, Mary Boleyn soon gained her place at Court as a lady-in-waiting to Catherine.

As often wikipedia is at the very least a good starting point for many answers to your questions
