Duke of Edinburgh, 90, Hospitalized with Bladder Infection
(LONDON) -- Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, has been taken to the hospital to be treated for a bladder infection. He will miss Monday’s Diamond Jubilee Concert, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.
"Prince Philip will remain in hospital under observation for a few days,” the Palace said in announcing the news.
"He is, understandably, disappointed about missing this evening's Diamond Jubilee Concert and tomorrow's engagements."
The concert is one of a series of events celebrating the queen’s 60 years on the throne, the second-longest reign in U.K. history.
Prince Philip, whose 91st birthday is this Sunday, was hospitalized last December due to chest pains. The palace said Philip was treated for a blocked coronary artery and a successful “invasive procedure of coronary stenting” was performed.
Philip, the duke of Edinburgh, married Prince Elizabeth in 1947. She took the throne as queen six years later.
