Philip in hospital, will miss Queen’s fete
LONDON | Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, was hospitalized Monday with a bladder infection and will miss the rest of the celebrations of the monarch’s 60 years on the throne, Buckingham Palace said.
The palace said the prince, who will turn 91 on Saturday, was taken to the King Edward VII Hospital in London from Windsor Castle as a precaution and will remain under observation for a few days.
He missed Monday evening’s Buckingham Palace pop concert celebrating the queen’s jubilee, as well as a service of thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral and a carriage procession Tuesday.
Philip, who is also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, is a former naval officer who married the queen in 1947. His health remained robust through his 80s, but he has appeared frailer in recent years.
