Prince Philip in hospital as royals mark Christmas
Question of the Day
The 90-year-old prince was recovering from having a coronary stent put in after doctors determined the heart pains that sent him to the hospital on Friday were caused by a blocked artery.
Buckingham Palace said “he’s in good spirits” and family members will visit Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, in the hospital after lunch.
The huge crowds that gathered outside the church got an early peek when the royals made a quick private visit to the church ahead of the services. Less than two hours later, they were back _ in different clothes _ for the Christmas service.
Prince Harry walked in with his brother William and new sister-in-law Kate_ now known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Kate, whose style is closely watched around the world and who sends any dress she wears flying off the shelves in Britain, wore an eggplant-colored coat and matching hat.
Among the other royals present was the queen’s granddaughter, Zara Philips, who was joined by her new husband Mike Tindall, an English rugby player.
After the service, children lined up to give bouquets of flowers to the queen. Thanking each well-wisher, the queen then handed the bouquets to her granddaughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
“Charles said he is coming on,” said Fitt.
The royal family then traveled back to the house for lunch, an integral part of their celebration.
The 85-year-old queen has made a prerecorded Christmas broadcast on radio since 1952 and on television since 1957. She writes the speeches herself, and the broadcasts mark the rare occasion on which the queen voices her own opinion without government consultation.
