Condition of the Prince Consort

December 13, 1861

The following bulletin was issued earlier today from Windsor Castle:

"His Royal Highness the Prince Consort passed a restless night, and the symptoms have assumed an unfavourable character during the day."

The bulletin was signed by the Prince Consort's four doctors:  James Clark, Henry Holland, Thomas Watson and William Jenner.

Shortly before 2 a.m., the Prince of Wales left the South-Western Railway station by special train, having received a message that "his presence was required at Windsor Castle."
