The prince was there to meet with two top surgeons who are using advanced robotic surgical technology called a da Vinci XI machine, and he watched the surgeons operate on two different cancer patients.
“It’s the same as the PlayStation gear,” William said after the surgery. “You can see all the doctors have done PlayStation. They let me watch but not to have a go.”
“It’s fascinating watching the robot work, it’s just so precise,” he continued. “You see it so up close. You can really see how the human body is and how it works.”
William is President of The Royal Marsden, which was very special to his late mother Princess Diana. It is the same renowned cancer institution his mother represented from 1989 until her death in 1997.
