Prince Philip, 96, admitted to hospital for planned hip surgery

Queen Elizabeth IIs husband Prince Philip, was today admitted to a London hospital for a planned hip surgery, Buckingham Palace said.

Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, has been hospitalised for a pre-scheduled surgery of his hip, the Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Tuesday.

Philip was also due to attend the annual Maundy Service last Thursday at St. George's Chapel Chapel with Queen Elizabeth but cancelled at the last minute due to a problem with his hip. The palace said at the time he had carried out roughly 22,000 solo royal engagements since Elizabeth ascended to the throne in 1952. A spokesman said there would be further updates "when appropriate".

This past Sunday, the queen marked the Easter holiday at a church service in Windsor without her husband of more than 70 years.

Rusia cuestiona a Londres y París por el 'fabricado' caso Skripal
En el ámbito bilateral entre Londres y Moscú , el gobierno británico , había expulsado a 23 diplomáticos rusos . Los británicos tienen 50 diplomáticos más que los rusos", dijo la vocera de la Cancillería, Maria Zakharova.

Details of the duke's condition, or which joint is causing the issue, have not been released by Buckingham Palace but the late Queen Mother underwent two successful hip operations in the 1990s, first when aged 95 then later when she was 97.

His final solo engagement was on 2 August previous year, when he reviewed a parade of Royal Marines outside Buckingham Palace in his capacity as Captain General of the corps. Prince Philip's appearance at the ceremony was very important as he was expected to hand over the role to Prince Andrew as he had been the Colonel of the Grenadier Guards since 1975.

At the time the Queen's consort was said to be experiencing some trouble with the joint. Prince Philip will attend previously scheduled engagements between now and August, both individually and accompanying the Queen.

And earlier last month the duke did not attend an event with the Duke of York and Queen because he was reportedly "under the weather". Do you have a message for him?
