Princes struck down by water supply bug

Royal brothers take time out after stomach bug takes hold

PRINCE WILLIAM and brother Harry are among several riders to be struck by a stomach bug four days into their South African charity motorbike rally.

The Royal duo had taken a break from riding due to the effects of the illness, which is usually contracted from water, but are now back.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: "A number of riders have had upset stomachs over the past couple of days and have had to take a short break from riding. They all knew Enduro was going to be a tough challenge but they are all getting on with it and taking this illness in their stride."
