The prince met children receiving treatment for leukaemia and brain tumours on Kamran’s Ward.

Sarah Vaccari, from Oxford Hospitals Charity, said: “We’d love to have him all day and show him absolutely everywhere across the children’s hospital, we’re so proud of it.

“But I think he’ll meet enough people and patients and supporters to get a really good sense of why it’s such a special hospital.”
