London (AP) – Queen husband Prince Philip received a visit from his son Prince Charles in the hospital at the weekend.  The  99-year-old stayed in the private King Edward VII clinic in London, where Charles (72) visited him on Saturday for around half an hour.

© The  aged prince consort was hospitalized for a few days on Tuesday evening for observation – according to the palace in London, a purely precautionary measure. What the Duke of Edinburgh suffered from remained a private matter. However, the stay should not be related to Corona. Queen Elizabeth II and her husband had both received their first corona vaccination in January.

Prince Philip is in good spirits, but will probably stay in the hospital until next week, it said on Friday. © The  Queen and other members of the royal family continued to attend official appointments throughout the week. Observers had initially seen this as a reassuring sign of the Prince Consort’s state of health.

Prince Charles traveled a long way from his country estate, Highgrove House, which is more than 100 miles away near Bristol, to visit. Previously, he is said to have not seen his father in person for a few months because of the applicable corona restrictions. According to the website, visitors to King Edward VII Hospital are only allowed in “exceptional circumstances”.

More happy news came over the weekend from the Queen’s granddaughter, Princess Eugenie, and her husband Jack Brooksbank: “We want to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank,” the young mother wrote on Instagram for a photo of her son, who was born on February 9th – wrapped in a light blue blanket – can be seen with his proud parents.

“Our hearts are full of love for this little person, words cannot describe that,” explained the princess. It is the first child of the 30-year-old and her husband Jack Brooksbank (35) – and already the Queen’s ninth great-grandson. © The  middle name Philip is considered a tribute to Eugenie’s grandfather. Little August is currently eleventh in the line of succession to the British throne, but should slip to twelfth in a few months – when Prince Harry and Meghan have their second child.

© The se had made the final cut from the British crown last week. © The  Duke and Duchess of Sussex would no longer be returning as working members of the royal family, Buckingham Palace said at the end of the week. With this, the couple also lose their numerous patrons and Harry his military honorary degrees.

© The  couple, who now live in California, said they would remain closely connected to the organizations. «We can all live a life in the service of the community. It’s universal, ”said the couple’s spokesman – a reaction that, according to insiders, was considered inappropriate by the royal family.
