Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip enters hospital for hip surgery

Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, Admitted To Hospital For Planned Operation

Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, Admitted To Hospital For Planned Operation

The Duke of Edinburgh was taken to king Edward hospital VII in London, where tomorrow will take place of the previously scheduled operation on the thigh of the Prince.

English Queen Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip, has been admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London. "Further updates will be issued when appropriate", the palace said in a statement.

Instead of having her husband by her side, the Queen was accompanied by extended members of the royal family, including Prince William, Kate Middleton, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie and Zara Phillips.

On Sunday, April 1, the 96-year-old was noticeably missing from the Easter services as he is always by his wife, Queen Elizabeth's side.

It faces tough competition from the second-largest streaming company Apple Music, which has 38 million subscribers. That could make it even more hard for investors to settle on the right price for Spotify's stock, they say.

Prince Philip has spent much of his life in good health, but was treated for a blocked coronary artery in 2011 and a bladder infection in 2012. It is unknown at this time whether his ailments also kept him from attending his son Prince Andrew's ceremonial appointment as the Colonel of the Granadier Guards in March.

Philip retired from public life a year ago but has since appeared several times at royal engagements alongside Elizabeth.

A royal source claims that Prince Philip had planned on attending the Maundy Service, but decided not to go after he began experiencing some issues with his hip. The palace said at the time he had carried out roughly 22,000 solo royal engagements since Elizabeth ascended to the throne in 1952.

He and the Queen celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in November. Philip, who at the time had Greek and Danish royal titles, abandoned his previous titles to marry the future Queen.
