Harry asserted that doctors should give patients advice on what exercise to do and ways to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Doctors agreed that exercise plays a key part in improving the nation's health, but warned that time was often against them when it came to giving fitness guidance to patients.

The study will be presented in a meeting at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.
