Buckingham Palace has said that Prince Philip has been shifted to a hospital after he felt unwell. The 99-year-old was advised by his doctor to get admitted. He went to King Edward VII Hospital in London on Tuesday evening, February 16. "The Duke’s admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’s Doctor, after feeling unwell. The Duke is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days of observation and rest,” the palace stated in a note.

Reports also said that the Duke of Edinburgh is in "good spirits" after his admission. For the past several months, he was staying in Windsor Castle after a brief stay in his home at Wood Farm in Sandringham in the summer of 2020. Earlier, in December 2019 also, Philip got admitted to hospital on the advice of his doctor as a precaution.
