Prince William Scrubs in to Watch Robotic Surgery in London

Prince William Scrubs in to Watch Robotic Surgery in London”

Prince William looked just like his mother as he scrubbed up for a visit to the Royal Marsden hospital.

Princess Diana was known for her kind nature while visiting the sick and her inquisitive nature and it appears her son, Prince William has taken after his late mother. She also famously donned scrubs to attend a heart operation on a boy from Cameroon at Harefield hospital in Middlesex.

According to a tweet from Kensington Palace, "The Royal Marsden has the largest and most comprehensive programme of robotic surgery for cancer in the United Kingdom, revolutionising the way cancer patients are treated".

The Duke of Cambridge joked as he compared the practice to that of playing on a PlayStation.

The Duke of Cambridge paid a visit to the Royal Marsden Hospital in London on Wednesday, where he watched Professor Vinidh Paleri and his medical team perform a minimally invasive procedure on a patient battling adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare form of cancer.

Mr Omar, a retired anaesthetist from Sutton, south London, worked at the Royal Marsden in the 1980s where he met his radiographer wife, and was having tests after a tumour was removed from his bladder.

'You can see all the doctors have done Playstation. They let me watch but not to have a go'.

The prince also showed off his warm bedside manner when he chatted with patients in treatment at the hospital, including one patient who was a former Royal Marsden Hospital staff member.
