A Clarence House spokesman said: “The Duchess of Cornwall’s brother, Mark Shand, has been taken to a New York hospital after falling and sustaining a serious head injury.  The Duchess, her family and The Prince of Wales are clearly deeply concerned and are being kept closely informed.”

This is the link.

As I was reading it, it was saying he was fighting for his life. I closed the article to answer the door and reopened the bookmark but in those few minutes, he had died. Quite a shock. Reading his biography he sounds a very interesting man.

What a shock for Camilla.

In one report it said he fell backwards when returning through the revolving doors.  Although we shouldn't speculate, falling backwards often indicates a stroke or heart attack.  RIP - a good man who did so much for conservation and a brother to be proud of.

I read some of the NY papers this morning. He had not only been taking blood pressure meds but had been drinking during the event and afterwards. The combination could have made him feel faint since his blood pressure could have plummeted.

You mean this drug, Sandy?  Warfarin?  It has a name for being dangerous and can cause sudden bleeds. 

RIP Mr Shand.  My condolences to his family/

The DM reported he was taking:
Ramipril and Simvastan and that his dosage had been upped in recent months. Plus the NY papers reported he also was drinking that night. It most likely caused his blood pressure to plummet and he fainted and hit his head.

^How sad.  But, I felt like a peeping tom looking at those pictures.  Grief is so personal and should be respected as such.
