Morton, best known for an explosive biography of the late Princess Diana 25 years ago, was delivering a speech at a literary lunch organised by The Oldie magazine.

“He became unwell this afternoon, he’s been taken to hospital as a precautionary measure,” said the spokeswoman.

No further details were immediately available.

Morton’s latest book is “Meghan: A Hollywood Princess”, a biography of the new royal-to-be who marries Diana’s younger son Prince Harry on Saturday.
