The bad news has not spared members of the British Royal Family in recent months. In March, Tom Parker Bowles, the son of Camilla Parker Bowles and stepson of Prince Charles, lost his partner. Alice Procope was a journalist and shared the life of a food critic for two years. The latter was suffering from cancer. “Partly because of Covid, Alice’s cancer diagnosis only came last August, when it was too late,” said one of her friends. No treatment was possible to stop the progression of his disease. The young woman was 42 years old and had three children, born from her previous union with Robert Procope. “It’s really inhuman. And there are going to be countless cases similar to hers!”, Added the journalist’s friend. Alice Procope’s death came as thousands of Britons reportedly missed crucial appointments due to the coronavirus epidemic affecting England, but also the whole world.
Tom Parker Bowles smiled again within hours
A drama that had devastated the son of the Duchess of Cornwall, “Tom was divinely happy with Alice, he is devastated to see how cruel life can be,” one of his relatives told British media Entertainment Daily. More than a month after this death, Tom Parker Bowles was seen in the streets of London with a friend, who managed to make him smile for a few hours. The friends had lunch together at a restaurant on the Thames in West London, before soaking up the spring sun.
