  • Duke of Edinburgh admitted to hospital for 'planned surgery'

Buckingham Palace says Queen Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip, has been admitted to the hospital for a previously scheduled hip surgery.

Britain's Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in his role as Captain General, Royal Marines, attends a Parade to mark the finale of the 1664 Global Challenge on the Buckingham Palace Forecourt in central London on August 2, 2017.

The Duke of Edinburgh will undergo the surgery at the King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone tomorrow. "Further updates will be issued when appropriate", the palace said in a statement.

The 96-year-old prince has largely retired from public life, but still accompanies the queen on occasion. At times blunt to the point of rudeness, Philip is Elizabeth's most important support.

The health scare comes at a busy time for the royal family.


The Prince, who is married to Queen II, had to unexpectedly skip out on the Easter service at Windsor Castle and also couldn't attend the annual Maudy service at St. George's Chapel. He was also hospitalized for an "infection stemming from a pre-existing condition" in June of a year ago.

At the moment, there is no word on whether or not the circumstance is what kept him from attending his son Prince Andrew's appointment as the new Colonel of the Grenadier Guards on March 22.

Concerns regarding Philip's health first started to emerge last June after the father-of-four was hospitalized for an infection caused by a pre-existing condition.

Born in Greece in 1921, Philip was a child of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Gl├╝cksburg, a Greek-Danish royal family. Prince Philip adopted the surname, Mountbatten, which was his mother's maiden name and became a British citizen.
