The prince's last public appearance was in May when he attended the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle alongside the queen.

A royal source said it was not an emergency admission and that the prince had been able to walk into the hospital.

Since he is already 98 years old and will recover longer than usual, Prince Philip won't be joining the Queen on the train to Sandringham on Christmas Day.

Philip had a rocky start to the year when he was involved in a collision in a rural area of eastern England in January.

The Duke of Edinburgh is receiving treatment for a pre-existing condition.

The palace released a statement about the Duke of Edinburgh's health, as well, informing the public he was taken to the hospital for observation and treatment in relation to a pre-existing condition.

It's been a busy week for Her Majesty as she hosted a party to thank household staff on Monday, followed by a Christmas lunch with extended members of her family at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

Seahawks' WR Gordon suspended for violating National Football League substance policies
The league announced the suspension Monday, one day after Gordon appeared in his fifth game this season with the Seahawks . Gordon played six games with the Patriots this year, catching 20 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown.

He is now expected to remain in hospital for a few days.

The Queen was forced to delay her annual Christmas break in Norfolk in order to deliver a speech at the State Opening of Parliament on Thursday.

The Queen & Duke Of Edinburgh have a loving and successful marriage.

However, the Queen's reaction to the ageing Duke's hospital admission shows it is "business as usual", one royal commentator has claimed.

On the different hand, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will doubtless be absent, as a replacement opting to spend their first Christmas as fogeys with the Duchess's mom Doria Ragland.

Philip, who has been at his wife's side throughout her record-breaking 67 years on the throne, retired from public life in August 2017 although he has occasionally appeared at official engagements since.
