Prince William says his grandfather Prince Philip is ‘OK’ and doctors are ‘keeping an eye on him'

Buckingham Palace called Prince Philip’s admission 'a precautionary measure' taken on the advice of his doctor


Buckingham Palace called Philip’s admission "a precautionary measure" taken on the advice of his doctor. His illness is not believed to be COVID-19 related. Philip and his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, received the first dose of the vaccine against the coronavirus in early January.

Philip retired from public duties in 2017 and rarely appears in public. His most recent public event was a military ceremony at Buckingham Palace in July.

During England’s current coronavirus lockdown, the duke has been staying at Windsor Castle, west of London, with the queen, who has performed duties such as meetings with dignitaries remotely.
