Prince Philip Has Been Hospitalized - Find Out Why

Prince Philip is in the hospital.

The 98-year-old Duke of Edinburgh and husband of Queen Elizabeth II was admitted to the hospital as a “precautionary measure,” Buckingham Palace said Friday (December 20).

He arrived at King Edward VII Hospital in London, United Kingdom in the morning after traveling from the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

The palace said that it was for observation regarding a preexisting condition, at the advice of his doctor. He was not taken by ambulance.

Prince Philip retired from public life back in August of 2017.

“The Duke of Edinburgh travelled from Norfolk this morning to the King Edward VII Hospital in London for observation and treatment in relation to a pre-existing condition. The admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’ Doctor,” the palace said in their statement.

He is expected to stay there for a few days.
