London - Royal officials in Britain say that the brother of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has died after sustaining a serious head injury following a fall in New York.

Clarence House said that the 62-year-old Mark Shand died in the hospital on Wednesday after falling late on Tuesday.

It said in a statement that Camilla, her husband Prince Charles and all of her family members are "utterly devastated by this sudden and tragic loss".

Shand, a travel writer, was in New York for an auction in aid of charities including the Elephant Family, an organisation chaired by Shand devoted to saving the endangered Asian elephant.

Camilla and Charles are due to go on a tour of Canada next month.
