The Duke of Edinburgh has been admitted to hospital for treatment for an infection arising from a pre-existing condition.
Buckingham Palace reported he was admitted for precautionary causes. The Prince who announced last month that he would step down from public life further raised questions about the state of his health.
The Duke was admitted to the King Edward VII hospital in central London after becoming unwell at Windsor, following his appearance at Royal Ascot.
Buckingham palace however said the Prince would attend previously scheduled engagements between now and August, both individually and accompanying the Queen.
