According to ET Canada, Queen Elizabeth’s husband Prince Philip reportedly spent his second night at a hospital in London. The 99-year-old royal’s admission was not an emergency one and not COVID-related. A royal insider who spoke to the publication revealed that despite the condition, the royal “remains in good spirits.”

 

“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,” the Palace said in a statement after the news broke.

 

 

Back in January, Prince Philip along with Queen Elizabeth received their COVID vaccinations and earned praise from their grandson Prince William. Taking part in Britain’s COVID-19 vaccination roll-out to combat the coronavirus pandemic, the 38-year-old Duke of Cambridge commended his grandparents for taking part and being an example for others. “My grandparents have had the vaccine and I’m very proud of them for doing that,” William shared in a video. “It’s really important that everyone gets their vaccine.” Elizabeth, 94, and Philip, 99, are both considered part of the high-risk category because of their advanced ages. The vaccination rollout is also giving hope to the Royal Family about upcoming public events to take place, like the Trooping The Color. Many events were cancelled or scaled-down in 2020.
