Buckingham Palace confirms that Prince Phillip has been admitted to hospital

The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital in London.

 

Buckingham Palace says: “His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital in London, on Tuesday evening.

“The Duke’s admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’s Doctor, after feeling unwell.”

 

Prince Philip, 99 marked the transfer of his role as Colonel-in-Chief of The Rifles to his daughter-in-law the Duchess of Cornwall recently. 

He is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest reports suggest. 

A source told the BBC that Prince Philip had ‘been feeling unwell for a few days, but that it was not related to coronavirus’.

Two years ago he was admitted to the King Edward VII hospital for a planned hip replacement, and was discharged after nine days.

 

Back in December 2019, he spent four nights at King Edward VII Hospital, he was admitted as a “precautionary measure” back then also and this visit to hospital was for a treatment for a “pre-existing condition”.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson sends his “best wishes” to the duke as he “undergoes a few days of rest in hospital” a spokesperson has said.
