The prince was admitted to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment, according to the palace. He is likely to remain there for the next few days.

The palace said earlier Wednesday that he was hospitalized “as a precautionary measure.” He was taken by ambulance to the U.K. hospital.

The 91-year-old duke has had a number of health scares in recent years.

It’s his third hospital stay in the last eight months.
