The Duke of Edinburgh is in “good spirits” after spending a second night in hospital, after he was admitted as a precaution.
Prince Philip, 99, who is known as the “Iron Duke” was taken to King Edward VII’s Hospital on Tuesday after he felt unwell, which is not Covid related.
He was driven to hospital and no ambulance was required, and he walked unaided into the hospital.
Palace sources said the “Iron Duke” is in “good spirits.”
A royal source said, “We are all aware of the Duke’s character and he will want minimum of fuss made, especially when the doctors and nurses are all working so hard during the pandemic.
“He was happy to go in as a precaution and is in good spirits.
“He’s been told to rest and will stay in for a few days doing so.”
Buckingham Palace previously said in a statement, “His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to King Edward VII’s Hospital in London on Tuesday evening.
“The duke’s admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’s doctor, after feeling unwell.
“The duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest.”
