Prince Philip, 99, was admitted to a London hospital because of an indisposition, Buckingham Palace announced on Wednesday.
Buckingham Palace said the Prince Consort was admitted to King Edward VII Private Hospital on Tuesday night as a “Precautionary measure” on the doctor’s advice and who should stay in the hospital for a few days of “observation and rest”.
Prince Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, withdrew from public office in 2017 and rarely appears in public.
During the covid-19 pandemic in England, Philip has been living in Windsor Castle, on the outskirts of west London, accompanied by the queen, with a restricted group of employees to reduce the risk of illness.
About a week ago it was announced that both received the first doses vaccines against covid-19 in January, together with the remaining priority group of people over 85 years of age.
The covid-19 pandemic caused at least 2,419,730 deaths worldwide, resulting from more than 109.4 million cases of infection, according to a report made by the French agency AFP.
