Prince Philip Health: Why Husband of Queen Elizabeth was Hospitalized

Prince Philip Health: Why Husband of Queen Elizabeth was Hospitalized

The Duke of Edinburgh will undergo planned surgery on his hip at King Edward VII Hospital on Wednesday.

Buckingham Palace said Prince Philip was admitted to King Edward VII's Hospital in Marylebone on Tuesday afternoon for the planned procedure.

The prince announced in May that he was retiring from most public duties after decades of royal service.

It's unclear if Philip's latest hospitalization stems from the same ailment that prevented him from attending Prince Andrew's appointment as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards on March 22, or if his hip played a part in his absence at Easter festivities.

The 96-year-old royal, who is married to Queen Elizabeth II, skipped Easter services this past weekend in order to rest up prior to his operation.

The Belgium global has struck 15 league goals for the Old Trafford club since signing from Everton in the close season. After this, Sánchez doubled United's lead by scoring another goal in the 20th minute.

It comes after the Duke missed three public engagements in the last 10 days.

Philip retired from public life previous year but has since appeared several times at royal engagements alongside Elizabeth.

He did not attend a church service last week attended by the monarch because of a hip problem, a royal source said last week. Prince Philip retired from his royal duties on August 2 2017.

Aged just 18 months, he and his family were evacuated in a British Royal Navy ship from politically unstable Greece, with the toddler reputedly carried in a cot made from an orange box. Following the news, the Palace stated that Queen Elizabeth completely supported his decision.

He and Elizabeth celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in November. The soon-to be royal couple will tie the knot at the location on May 19.
