The Duke of Edinburgh is “very well” in hospital where he is being looked after since being admitted last Friday; Prince Charles says of his ailing father when asked about it by member of the public Monday///CRIMSON TAZVINZWA
The duke’s planned admission on Friday to the private central London hospital, which has been treating members of the royal family for decades, was described as a “precautionary measure” by Buckingham Palace.
During a visit to flood-hit communities in South Yorkshire on Monday, Charles was asked about his father’s health by a reporter.
“He’s being looked after very well in hospital,” Charles replied.
“At the moment that’s all we know.”
During the visit, a woman in Fishlake asked Charles: “Sir, how is your father?”
He replied: “Alright. When you get to that age things don’t work so well.”
The Queen did not change her schedule as a result of her husband’s hospital stay.

One of the greatest sins that we can ever commit on the journey to success is “not doing something wholeheartedly”—not doing something enough—or, not doing something strong enough! Many people lack some necessary zeal and vigor which are two useful servants of faith and unlimited potential or abilities: we don’t do what we know we’re […]
The vouchers can be exchanged at lots of shops across the city including large supermarkets and local stores – as well as at some stalls on Leicester Market.
Vouchers can be exchanged for plain fresh and frozen fruit and vegetables, plain cows’ milk and infant formula milk. Free vitamins are also available. Always check with a retailer before getting to the till to check they accept the vouchers.
Families on certain benefits or a low income could qualify for the vouchers if they have a child under the age of 4.
Women who are on certain benefits or a low income could qualify from when they are 10 weeks pregnant, and pregnant women under the age of 18 qualify for the vouchers even if they are not receiving benefits.
Application forms for the vouchers are available from children’s centres, midwives and health visitors, or you can find one online on the Healthy Start website, www.healthystart.nhs.uk.
Ensuring take-up of Healthy Start vouchers is one of a number of initiatives the city council is working on to reduce the impact of poverty, improve lives and help children to reach their full potential.
Deputy city mayor Cllr Sarah Russell, who leads on anti-poverty, said: “Healthy Start vouchers are an important way to ensure families on low incomes can access fruit and veg for their kids, to make sure they get the best start in life.
“It has been predicted by the charity ‘Sustain’ that more than 13,000 people in Leicester missed out on Healthy Start vouchers in 2018.
“We want to make sure everybody who is entitled to these vouchers takes them up and makes use of them at the many shops and major retailers across the city that accept them.”

Japanese free-diving world champion Sayuri Kinoshita has died at the age of 30.
According to police, Kinoshita was killed when she fell from her apartment in the southern island prefecture of Okinawa.
She was reportedly rushed to hospital and placed on life support, but was pronounced dead four days later.
“The injuries she sustained were too extensive to survive,” her sister Sanae wrote on Facebook.

“Despite this, her body was so strong that she kept fighting another four days before her heart finally gave up on Japan’s National Ocean Day, the 15th of July.
“She was surrounded by her family and friends.
“It was Sayuri’s wish that her friends and family would be able to enjoy a celebration of her amazing life at a ‘farewell party’ for a bright and enjoyable day, separate from the wake and funeral service.”
Her family said a “farewell party” would be scheduled separate from the wake and funeral service for her friends and family “to enjoy a celebration of her amazing life . . . for a bright and enjoyable day.”
Kinoshita broke the women’s Freediving world record in the Constant Weight No Fins (CNF) discipline at Vertical Blue 2016 with a 72-meter (236-foot) dive, being the first athlete to break any of the long-standing records held by the late Russian freediver, Natalia Molchanova.
At the 2018 Vertical Blue competition, Kinoshita broke the Free Immersion (FIM) women’s world record with a 97-meter (318-foot) dive, as well as making her first Constant Weight (CWT) dive to 100 meters (328 feet), making her only the sixth female freediver to reach that depth in competition.
