Gall bladder infections in older people is a much more serious matter than the news outlets and the Palace are making it seem...we lost our grandmother to this condition around the same age because she was too old to remove the gall bladder and sepsis moved in..here's to a speedy recovery to the Duke..

It is not a gall bladder infection. Americans are more likely to say urinary infection.
