UK: Prince Philip hospitalised for 'exploratory operation'
Prince Philip, the 91-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II, is expected to remain at the London Clinic for up to two weeks.

London: Prince Philip, the 91-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has been admitted to a hospital for an exploratory operation on his abdomen, a statement from the Buckingham Palace said.

"His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh has been admitted to the London Clinic for an exploratory operation following abdominal investigations. He is expected to stay in hospital for up to two weeks," said a statement issued on Thursday night by the Palace.

Philip is expected to remain at the London Clinic for up to two weeks. Philip's admission to hospital came shortly after he attended a Buckingham Palace garden party on Thursday.

The Duke had missed an engagement at the palace on Monday night because he was said to be feeling "under the weather".

However, a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said his admission to hospital was not related to this and merely because he had lost his voice. The Queen and Prince Philip had appeared together on the steps of Buckingham Palace yesterday afternoon, when the National Anthem was played to mark the start of the garden party.

Prime Minister David Cameron sent Philip his good wishes, writing on Twitter: "My best wishes to the Duke of Edinburgh who is in hospital tonight. I hope he has a swift recovery."

Philip was at the Queen's side at Westminster Abbey on Tuesday for the 60th anniversary of her coronation and yesterday toured a Victorian steamship, the SS Robin, in London's East End.

Earlier yesterday, the Queen invested Philip with New Zealand's highest honour, making him an additional member of the Order of New Zealand to mark the Diamond Jubilee. Police officers stood guard outside the central London hospital where Philip is to undergo the operation tomorrow.

The Queen will still perform her engagements as planned on Saturday, which include a visit to the new BBC studios in central London.
