That may be a Christmas treat for some patients indeed. I can imagine it'll make the stay in the hospital just a little bit brighter.

Glad that the procedure went well. Looking forward to seeing him up and about again soon.

#PrincePhilip was flown to hospital by colleagues of #PrinceHarry from RAF Wattisham in Suffolk in a search & rescue Sea King helicopter.
That's interesting to hear!

May God Bless the Duke as his body heals. May we always know that he is indeed a man before he is Duke, Husband, and father and let's wish him a speedy recovery.

It's not moving staff - it's all the highly technical equipment, drugs etc that is hard to transport. A few minutes in a helicopter to reach a major centre of excellence, rather than a bumpy ride in an ambulance to the local hospital is the obvious best choice.

I'd like to say that in the UK I believe "the best care is accorded and on hand" to everyone. When my husband got to hospital during a heart attack they began his immediate treatment even as the took his personal details. They saved his life very efficiently and he's still fine 5 years later. Despite all that the press say about it, thank God for our health system in the UK, where the level of care and treatment does not depend on bank balance, or insurance.

Duke of Edinburgh taken to hospital with chest pains and treated for a blocked coronary artery

...Sources said it was unlikely that members of the Royal Family would be visiting him in the coming hours but confirmed that his wife and children were being kept updated on his condition back at the Queen’s private Norfolk estate, where they are gathered for Christmas.
Although it may be viewed by some as uncaring, this is normal procedure within the Royal Family – and the Duke would have it no other way.
When he was in hospital for four days with a chest infection in 2008 he refused to receive any visitors and spent his time catching up on his paperwork...

My mother is 87 and had the same thing (chest pain, first checks at the local doctor, then immediate transport to a cardiac clinic for tests and then the removal of the blockage and and a stent as Op) just two weeks ago. She was in hospital for more than a week. What a scare that was for us! My heart goes out to HM because this is a very serious condition, but once you made through the Op and recovery goes well, then you have about another year at that age without any bothers.

The Duke had a good night apparently, and members of the royal family will visit him this morning it is unknown if they Queen will visit. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are travelling to Sandringham today, it is presumed they will detour to Papworth.

Sad news! My uncle and my neighbor had the same treatment a few years ago. My uncle is around 60 and recovered very well, my neighbor, around 70, is still having problems. Well, let's be frank - Prince Philip is 90 and still very very active at an age were many people are retired. Bad things can happen any day now, although he always appears remarkably fit. My great aunt is the same age and has always been very active and fit, but during the last months it went downhill rather quickly with her...

However, I wish a speedy & full recovery for the DoE and that he may enjoy many more healthy and happy years with his family!


PS: all the best for your mother too, Kataryn!

The Queen has just arrived by helicopter to visit Prince Philip. Wouldn't appear to be any other family members with her.

I am glad the Queen has arrived to see him. No doubt others will follow, but perhaps go more privately.

Prince Philip Suffers Chest Pains, Taken To Hospital From Sandringham, Treated For Blocked Artery | UK News | Sky News
The Queen has arrived at a Cambridgeshire hospital to visit the Duke of Edinburgh, after he was treated for a blocked coronary artery.
The Monarch arrived by helicopter near Papworth Hospital shortly before 11am and then ferried by vehicle, accompanied by security personnel.
