Who is Professor Sir Huw Thomas? Queen Elizabeth’s Doctor in her Final Days

Since 2014, Professor Sir Huw Thomas has served as the Royal’s medical chief. He was in charge of taking care of the remainder of the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth II. On Thursday, September 8, Huw brought up worries about Queen Elizabeth II’s health following his morning consultation.

The Queen reportedly knighted Sir Huw last year as a personal thank you for his years of caring for her and the royal family,

The skilled physician also teaches gastrointestinal genetics at the department of surgery and oncology at Imperial College London. He has additionally assisted in the delivery of several of the royal family’s newest members. Huw reportedly advised the Queen to stay away from high-profile events recently, including the Opening of Parliament in May, which she skipped for the first time in 59 years. She also missed a lot of the June festivities honouring her Platinum Jubilee.

He described his knighthood as a pleasant surprise in an interview with Imperial College, saying, “It was a very good surprise! I have spent the last 15 years working for the Royal Medical Household, the last seven of those as its head. It’s been a busy couple of years in this position, so I’m honoured to have received recognition for my past contribution, said Sir Huw. The nature of the work is exciting because you get to witness how a whole different organization—the Royal Household—runs, he continued. You very much become a part of that organisation and the main players inside it, who are patients just like other patients, have you as their personal doctor.

Sir Huw only sees the Queen as and when necessary because his position is not a full-time one. In 2006, he started working with the Royal Medical Household, where he was later named head eight years later. He also worked with the staff that cared for the Duchess of Cambridge while she gave birth to her youngest son Louis in 2018 and daughter Charlotte in 2015 at St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. Sir Huw is well-known for his research, particularly for his collaboration with the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) in the late 1980s. During this time, he assisted ICRF researchers in their efforts to map the location of the bowel cancer gene APC to chromosome 5.
