Prince Philip Hospitalized Due to an Infection

In June 2013, Buckingham Palace announced that he had been admitted to hospital for an exploratory operation on his abdomen and was expected to stay in the London Clinic for up to two weeks. He is receiving treatment for an infection which resulted from a pre-existing condition. In a press release, the royal family said Prince Philip was hospitalized that night at the Edward VII Hospital in London.

It was business as usual for Queen Elizabeth, as she attened the second day of Royal Ascot following the State Opening of Parliament.

Reporting at the Queens Speech, Skynews commentators remarked on how hard it must have been for the queen, who had to leave her husband's side to fulfil her duty.

Buckingham Palace said Wednesday June 21, 2017 that Prince Philip has been admitted to King Edward VII's Hospital for treatment of an infection and will not be attending the queen's speech.

The illness had forced him to miss the State Opening of Parliament. She is being kept "fully informed", an aide said.

The Palace would not give details about her husband's condition, but he has a history of bladder infection.

It is understood the duke was not admitted to hospital as an emergency but, on a doctor's advice, was driven from Windsor Castle.

Prince Philip is in remarkably good health for his age, but not surprisingly he has had to visit hospital numerous times in the past.

Outspoken, irascible and intensely private, Philip, a Greek-born former naval officer, has a reputation for brusque comments and occasional gaffes.

And observers say his quips put people at ease - while also providing a welcome contrast to the queen's seriousness.

We wish a quick and healthy recovery for Prince Philip! They were followed by the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent in a second carriage. The Queen, however, has not changed anything in her program.

"I reckon I've done my bit so I want to enjoy myself a bit now", he added, on his plans to wind down.

"He's getting better. He's getting better", he told reporters.
