Prince Philip in hospital after feeling ‘unwell’, says Palace -

The Duke of Edinburgh has been taken to hospital after feeling “unwell”, according to Buckingham Palace.

The 99-year-old was taken to the King Edward VII Hospital in London on Tuesday evening.

The Palace said in a statement that Prince Philip’s admission was “a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’s Doctor, after feeling unwell.”

“The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest,” the statement added.

It is understood that the royal travelled by car and it was not an emergency or a case of COVID-19.

The Queen, 94, remains at Windsor, where she has been since Christmas, with the royals avoiding their usual trip to their Norfolk home in Sandringham because of the pandemic.

The couple were among the first in the UK to receive their first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine at Windsor Castle in January.

The Duke of Edinburgh is due to celebrate his 100th birthday on June 10.

Philip was admitted to hospital just over a year ago in December 2019 for treatment for a “pre-existing condition”.

Buckingham Palace would not go into details about his ailment or the nature of his treatment.

The Duke’s decision to retire from public duties in 2017 was not health-related, Buckingham Palace said at the time.
