This is terrible news. Bladder infections are Much different when one is older, they can be deadly so I'm glad they have him in the hospital.

I think QEII should walk down the aisle with her four children as representatives of their father. All in-laws and grandchildren could be pre-seated.

Thankfully bladder infections can easily be cured. I think we should be glad it's not something worse. After all, he's not the youngest royal around. I hope he gets well soon.

Actually, standing in general is more comfortable with bladder infections than sitting. Have no idea why, that is just generally how it is.
Also, cranberry juice is actually not helpful with these type of infections -- it may irritate it more.
Bladder infections in the elderly are especially dangerous because they can sometimes lead to more serious infections, like kidney or such others.

Wish the Duke of Edinburgh a healthy return to the Jubilee celebrations soon

Fortunately bladder infection's symptoms are come by very quick and easily once the diagnosis is made. But I'm glad he is able to relax now in a warm bed after yesterday's Pageant, who while it surely was pure fun for his mind must have been a terrible ordeal for his body.

I personally don't understand why they didn't erect some sort of glass pavillon for the Royals in case of bad weather? It isn't as if it never rains in Braitain in summer and today's techniques make it possible to erect such a pavillon on a moment's notice, if need be, with all necessary equipment to air and heat it underneath the floor and out of sight. I guess it would have been much more comfortable for HM and the DoE to sit on their thrones in such a pavillon instead of standing in the foggy air on the river for hours on end.
You could see from the way Camilla carefully stepped down the steps at the end that she felt it in her bones how cold and wet the day had been.

I imagine that with both the Queen and the DoE getting up there in years that there is always excellent medical staff on call for immediate consultation should it be needed. Hopefully they caught this bladder infection in its early stages. I'm just wondering how long it took Philip to actually say something was bothering him. I'd really think that yesterday's pageant was something he was very much looking forward to being an old sea dog himself. Perhaps that's why they decided to head to Windsor Castle last night after the long day.

The Queen will sorely miss her husband by her side for the remainder of the Jubilee celebrations. I think though for the processional at the Thanksgiving service, she will opt to walk alone. NO one can take Philip's place

I'm sure there was no chance that Philip was going to miss an occasion like the flotilla, no matter how miserable he was. I wonder if anyone was aware of this condition before the event, or he 'fessed up afterwards. I feel so bad for him; judging by his enjoyment of the festivities yesterday, he's probably very disappointed and most likely so aggravated that he can't make the rest of them.

And I wouldn't be surprised, either, if HM will walk in the processional solo. If she can't have Philip at her side, no one will be there.

I wish Prince Philip a speedy and trouble free recovery. I'm glad he at least got to see the river pageant, much of which he seemed to truly enjoy, despite the weather! It's always worrisome to hear someone his age has been hospitalized for any reason, but at least in the hospital he'll have no choice but to rest and follow orders, so to speak, with no temptation to do more than he's able, as there might be if he recuperated at home.

That's a very bad news, I hope he will recover soon. But looking at how fragile he is at his age, I just admire his strength and decision to stay up on all the way on Thames River Pageants. He is too old to have resisted the bad weather conditions, it's a pity that he suffers because of it.

Very insightful post. I completely agree with you. By the end of the pageant one could see that her HM was cold and feeling uncomfortable and therefore being glad when it was over.

I don't think the rain was the issue. The cold was the problem, and in fairness to the organisers, I don't think anyone expected it to be that cold in London in June. I mean, the week before we'd had weather of 28C, and yet yesterday it was down to 10-12C.

I kinda felt that they could've decided earlier in the week, when the weather forecast was what it was, to move the pageant to today. I know it might not have suited some of the participants, but surely a pageant of 800 boats, say, in decent weather would've been better than a pageant of 1,000 boats with everyone frozen and soaked.

That would be nice too. Just thought before I left William off but letting Harry walk his Granny down the aisle at the survive would be nice.

Sorry to be thinking of the events and not the person. I too add to the many wishes of good luck to the Duke. Someone said and I agree he looked happy throughout the event. I hope he makes a full recovery and James Bond flies him in to the service right as the Queen arrives on Tuesday : ) !!!"

My guess is that Prince Charles will escort the Queen as the most senior male royal, and Prince Harry will walk with his stepmother.
