The Princess of Wales, not content with being a television celebrity, has revealed to the News of the World that she spends hours tending terminally ill hospital patients.

The Princess, whose overt ambition is to be "queen of hearts", tells readers of the tabloid this morning how she gains strength by slipping out of Kensington Palace in the middle of the night to visit patients in two London hospitals.

She says she spends up to three nights a week as a "secret angel", giving strangers emotional support as they come around from operations. In the interview, the Princess says of the people she visits in disguise: "Some will live and some won't live - but they all need to be loved while they're here."
