Prince Philip, 98, Hospitalized in London as a ‘Precautionary Measure’

Prince Philip was taken to the King Edward VII’s Hospital in London on Friday, December 20.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement to the BBC that the Duke of Edinburgh, 98, was admitted “for observation and treatment in relation to a preexisting condition.” It was “a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’ doctor,” the palace noted.

The news outlet reported that Philip is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days. He was not taken to the hospital by ambulance, and it was a planned admission.

The duke retired from public duties in August 2017 after decades of royal engagements with his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, by his side.
