Buckingham Palace says Prince Philip is “comfortable” in a London hospital where he is being treated for an infection
LONDON — Prince Philip is “comfortable” in a London hospital where he is being treated for an infection, Buckingham Palace said Tuesday.
He was admitted to the private King Edward VII’s Hospital a week ago after feeling ill. Royal officials called it a precautionary measure.
Philip’s youngest son, Prince Edward, told Sky News that his father was “a lot better.”
Edward said “he’s looking forward to getting out, which is the most positive thing, so we keep our fingers crossed.”
Philip married Elizabeth in 1947 at Westminster Abbey in London, five years before she became queen, and is the longest-serving royal consort in British history.
