Prince Philip hospital stay likely to continue this week

Prince Philip's hospital stay is likely to continue this week.

The 99 year old Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London as a precaution last Tuesday.

The Duke, who will turn 100 in June, is said to have walked into the hospital unaided.

His grandson, Prince William, said on Monday the Duke of Edinburgh is "ok" and doctors are "keeping an eye on him" in hospital.

He was visited by his son, Prince Charles, on Saturday.

The reason for Prince Philip's hospital stay has not been disclosed, but according to the BBC, it is unrelated to the coronavirus.

Both he and his wife, Queen Elizabeth, received their vaccines last month from a household doctor at Windsor Castle.
