Prince fights chest infection

THE Prince of Wales is to take three days off next week as he tries to fight off a persistent chest infection.

Charles has cancelled an appearance at Royal Ascot and the Garter Service at Windsor Castle on doctors' advice to convalesce from next Monday.

But the heir to the throne has decided to honour a number of long-standing commitments this week, Clarence House said.
