Royal biographer Andrew Morton, who wrote the book “Meghan: A Hollywood Princess”, has been rushed to hospital after suffering a mini-stroke, it’s been confirmed.
Morton, 65, was reported to have collapsed on stage while delivering a speech at The Oldie Literary Lunch in Central London on Tuesday, The Sun reported.
The author, who has also written books about Princess Diana and Prince William, has since taken to Twitter to thank fans for their well wishes, assuring them that he is on the mend.
His comments come after a source close to Morton said: “He is very unwell. We don’t know what’s wrong at the moment and he’s undergoing tests.”
An insider at the event continued, “Andrew was five minutes into his speech about Wallis Simpson when he lost concentration.”
“He forgot what he was saying, was sweating and started to sway. He ended up getting carted off from The Strand in the back of an ambulance and taken to UCLH (University College Hospital).”
Morton was also due to attend another event in Chelsea, West London, Tuesday evening to talk about his book, which is based on Meghan Markle’s life ahead of her marriage to Prince Harry on Saturday.
However, Waterstones King’s Road have since tweeted: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have been forced the Andrew Morton event. Sadly, we were left with no other option – please accept our sincerest apologies. We are offering refunds to all ticketholders so do pop in. Many thanks.”
