Prince Philip Rushed to the Hospital to Treat Bladder Infection
The 90-year-old was taken from Windsor Castle as a precautionary measure
Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who will turn 91 next Sunday, was rushed from Windsor Castle on Monday to London’s King Edward VII Hospital, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.
The hospitalization was described “as a precautionary measure after developing a bladder infection, which is being accessed and treated,” and according to the statement, “Prince Philip will remain … under observation for a few days.”
On Sunday, Philip stood with his family in the freezing rain for four hours during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee river pageant.
“He is, understandably, disappointed about missing [Monday’s] Diamond Jubilee Concert and [Tuesday’s] engagements,” the statement continues.
