The 99-year-old Prince Philip felt uncomfortable and was transferred to foster care about a week ago. Now, his grandson Prince William has made his first statement on the state of health.
British Prince Philip, who has been hospitalized, is doing well, according to his grandson Prince William. “Yes, he’s okay, they’re keeping an eye on him,” said the 38-year-old on Monday when asked by a journalist when visiting a vaccination center in the east of England.
The 99-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II was hospitalized last Tuesday as a “precautionary measure”. The re is still no exact reason for the hospital stay. According to insider sources, there is no connection to the corona virus – Queen Elizabeth II (94) and her husband both had their first corona vaccination in January. Philip will be 100 years old on June 10th.
