Britain’s Prince Philip, the 96-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth, has been admitted to hospital for hip surgery, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.
The Duke of Edinburgh is said to have complained of a problem with his hip which caused him to miss a Windsor Castle event with the Queen last week.
The planned surgery will take place on Wednesday, local time.
“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,” a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.
