Prince Philip, the 99-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II, was admitted to a private London clinic for observation on Tuesday evening – a purely precautionary measure, according to the palace. The stay should not be related to Corona.
The Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen both received their first corona vaccination in January.
The Queen and other members of the royal family continued to attend official appointments. Observers had initially seen this as a reassuring sign of the Prince Consort’s state of health.
Visit from Prince Charles
The visit of the 72-year-old worries. Because actually a spokesman had previously said that visitors are only allowed under “exceptional circumstances”.

Due to the corona pandemic and the strict lockdown in Great Britain, visits to the hospital are only possible under exceptional circumstances. Is the Duke’s state of health more serious than the palace has revealed so far?
Prince Harry is also said to have gone into self-isolation so that he can travel to London if his grandfather is serious. One thing is certain: Prince Philip will stay in the clinic for a few more days.
