different drugs could cut the risk of
heart attacks and strokes by a third,
a study has found.
The “polypill” includes two
commonly used blood pressure
lowering drugs, a cholesterol-busting
medicine and aspirin.
During a trial of 7,000 Iranian
patients aged 50 to 75, half were
given lifestyle advice on diet,
exercise and smoking.
The rest were given the same
advice, but also took the polypill

Lead researcher Professor Reza
Malekzadeh, of Tehran University of
Medical Sciences in Iran, said: “The
idea of the polypill has always been
appealing, and now we know that a
fixed-dose polypill can achieve
clinical benefits in practice.
“But the polypill is not an
alternative to a healthy lifestyle and
should be combined with physical
activity, a healthy diet and smoking
The team of international
researchers also included Professor
Tom Marshall, from the University
He said: “Because they have most
to gain, the most efficient strategy
would be to offer the polypill to those
at highest risk of heart disease.”

Green... Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
THE Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge took their children on a
£73 budget flight yesterday, amid
continuing controversy over Harry
and Meghan’s use of private jets.
Royal experts last night said that if
William and Kate had been trying to
embarrass the Duke and Duchess of
Sussex over their use of gas-guzzling
private jets, they could not have
done a better job.
The couple took a Flybe plane
from Norwich to Aberdeen to visit
the Queen at Balmoral.
Their decision prompted pointed
comparisons with the Sussexes, who
have faced widespread criticism for
taking four executive jets in 11 days
to holiday with their three-month-
old son, Archie.
Climate change campaigners
Harry and Meghan have been
accused of hypocrisy for hiring jets
- which would
dioxide – to
take them to
Ibiza and Sir
last night said
ated 10 per
cent of the carbon footprint of a
commercial passenger jet, like the
one the Cambridges used.
However, their plane would have
created one tenth of the pollution
caused by a private jet.
William and Kate took the 8.45am
flight with Prince George, six,
Princess Charlotte, four, and
16-month-old Prince Louis as well
as Kate’s mother Carole Middleton,
the children’s nanny, Maria Borrallo,
and police bodyguards.
Fellow passengers said the family
sat at the front of the plane and
many people did not notice who
they were until they disembarked.
William was seen carrying four
bags while Kate carried Louis. Even
George clutched his own backpack.
The family could have taken a tax-
payer-funded flight between royal
residences. But although the
Cambridges have used executive jets
before, they tend to fly by commer-
cial plane whenever possible.
Dickie Arbiter, former Buckingham
Palace press secretary, said: “It’s just
the sensible way to do it.”
He also criticised actress Jameela
Jamil – who appeared on the cover
of the British Vogue issue guest-
edited by Meghan – after she
accused the British people of racism
towards the Duchess.
She also claimed the royals could
not take commercial flights because
of security risks.
“That was just a silly thing to say,”
Mr Arbiter said. He recalled how
used a com-
on a royal
tour and said
it was com-
the family to
The way in
Harry choose to travel is being
seen by some as further evidence of
a feud between the brothers and
Earlier this year, the “Fab Four”
split their charitable foundation in
order to go their separate ways.
Phil Dampier, author of Royally
Suited: Harry and Meghan In Their
Own Words, said: “They certainly
won’t put paid to stories of a feud if
they are seen to be scoring points off
“A cynic might say the
Cambridges have done it deliber-
ately, bearing in mind all the recent
stories about the two brothers and
their wives not getting on.”
OPINION: PAGE 12
SHOCK news – the Duke and
Duchess of Cambridge and their
three children got on a Flybe
economy flight costing £73 each
and no-one was put in danger!
This was after actress Jameela
Jamil said it would be unsafe for
the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
to use commercial planes
because they were in danger of
being kidnapped or assassinated.
The Cambridges’ flight shows
this theory to be absolute
nonsense. It also shows that
Harry’s frequent use of private
jets is unnecessary.
Despite his public alarm over
climate change, Harry, Meghan
and baby Archie last week took a
private plane costing £20,000 to
Sir Elton John’s home in Nice.
The singer paid for the flight
“to maintain a high level of
much-needed protection” and
pointed out that he was a close
friend of Harry’s mother, Diana.
So where was the free jet for
Diana’s other son, William, and
The difference in flight styles
underlines the growing
separation of the two princes.
They are rarely seen together
with their wives and are reputed
to be visiting the Queen at
different times during her annual
break at Balmoral.
In the last golden years of the
her reign, the brothers should be
growing closer. Sadly, it seems
they could not be further apart.
