Buckingham Palace has confirmed the Duke of Edinburgh’s hospitalisation is not related to COVID-19 after he was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital Tuesday night.
Philip, 99, was driven to hospital as a precautionary measure following the advice of a palace doctor after a short period of feeling unwell. He was taken by car and walked into the building unaided.
“The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest,” according to a palace spokesman, and is said to be “in good spirits.”
