Update: Prince Philip has undergone a successful hip replacement surgery and is now recovering. "The Duke of Edinburgh has undergone a successful hip replacement operation," Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Wednesday. "He is progressing satisfactorily at this early stage. His Royal Highness is likely to remain in the hospital for several days. He is comfortable and in good spirits."
Original post: Prince Philip has been admitted to a hospital for hip surgery, Buckingham Palace announced in a statement to People on Tuesday. "His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London this afternoon, for planned surgery on his hip which will take place tomorrow," the statement read.
The 96-year-old royal has been having "trouble with his hip" recently, and his hospitalisation comes a week after Philip cancelled his annual Maundy church service appearance with Queen Elizabeth II last minute. It's also possible that his hip trouble is what caused him to also skip out on Prince Andrew's appointment as the new Colonel of the Grenadier Guards in March. Wishing Philip a speedy recovery!
