Queen's doctor dies while riding his bike to work

Queen Elizabeth’s doctor was killed while riding his bike in London.

Peter Fisher, 67, died after he collided with a truck while on his way to his job at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine in Bloomsbury.

The unfortunate incident took place during the National Cycle to Work Day in England. According to BBC, he was a world expert in homeopathy and worked for the Queen for 15 years.

The BBC reports Fisher is the seventh cyclist to die in the British capital this year. However, they also noted that the amount of cyclist deaths in London has gone down since 2011.

Sir Marcus Setchell, the Queen's former gynecologist, told London's Evening Standard newspaper that "he was much respected as a good doctor who saw homeopathy as complementary to medical care. We are all shocked by his tragic loss."

Police appealed for witnesses to the crash to come forward, saying the truck driver had stopped at the scene and was helping with the investigation.

Buckingham Palace has not issued a formal statement, but the Queen has been told of his death.
