Prince Philip, 99, admitted to hospital after feeling ‘unwell’

The Duke of Edinburgh has been admitted to hospital in London after feeling unwell, Buckingham Palace said this afternoon.

Prince Philip, 99, was last night taken to the private King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone as a 'precautionary measure' on the advice of his doctor and is expected to remain there for a few days for observation.

His illness is not Covid-related and it is understood the decision to admit him was taken with an 'abundance' of caution.

The Duke is said to be in 'good spirits' and walked into the hospital unaided after being driven there by car.

The Queen, 94, has remained at Windsor Castle where the couple have been staying during lockdown.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: 'His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital in London, on Tuesday evening.

'The Duke's admission is 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.'

Boris Johnson this afternoon led the nation in sending his best wishes to the Duke for a speedy recovery.
