One of the key points living to a grand old age is having the right medical care, if your GP is Professor Sir Huw Thomas you are defiantly in good hands.

The chances are – he’s not, unless you photo ID can be proved by a first or second class stamp.

Thomas has been the Head of the Medical Household and Physician of the Queen since 2014, last year he was knighted after being invested with the Insignia of a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order.

With The Queen celebrating her 96th birthday today, April 21, it goes without saying she has one of the country’s most professional doctors.

In the past Thomas has spoken publically on how honoured he is to be recognised for his royal services.

Speaking at his knighthood the doctor said: "It's been a busy couple of years in this role, so I feel very grateful to have been recognised for my service to date."

He added: "You very much become part of that organisation and become the personal doctor to the principal people in it, who are patients just like other patients.

"With the pandemic, the key priority of the Medical Household is trying to make sure that the people under its care are kept safe."

Thomas has also supported other members of the Royal Family, he looked after the Duchess of Cambridge when she gave birth to Charlotte in 2015 and her youngest son Louis in 2018 at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington in London.

Sir Huw Thomas studied natural sciences at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in 1979.
