The British Prince Philip (99) is being treated for an infection in the hospital, according to Buckingham Palace. “He is feeling well and responding to treatment, but is not expected to leave the hospital in the coming days,” the palace said on Tuesday, according to British reports. It is the first time that Queen Elizabeth II’s husband has been given a reason for hospitalization.
Philip had been rushed to the hospital on the evening of February 16 – a purely precautionary measure, according to the palace in London.
The stay should not be related to a corona infection.
The Queen and her husband both received their first corona vaccination in January.
The youngest son of the royal couple, Prince Edward, told Sky News that his father was “much better”. “He’s looking forward to getting back out there, which is the most positive,” he said. “We keep our fingers crossed.”
The prince thanked him on behalf of his father for the sympathy.
