Prince Harry, 16, the younger son of Britain’s Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, chipped a bone in his thumb while playing sports at school last week but is now is back at Eton. “It’s a very minor incident,” a royal spokesman said on Friday, a day after Harry was operated on. “It was thought to be bruising, but an X-ray was taken as a precautionary measure and it showed chipping.” Meanwhile, Harry’s great-grandmum, the Queen Mother, 100, is said to be mending nicely after breaking her collarbone in a fall the previous week.
