I can not understand what happened suddenly!
He was taken ill with a urinary tract infection. An infection that would have been present the day of the pageant but was perhaps not as of yet a concern for him. He may not even known he had it that time.

Normally symptoms become evident when the bacteria has been in the system a number of days.

So, when he started to exhibit signs of ill health, he was checked over and taken to hospital by ambulance where treatment could be administered.

These things happen.

He was carriage driving on Monday morning at Windsor before complaining of pains and then being taken to hospital.

That fact right there may be why they're keeping him in the hospital for a couple of days. You can't keep a good man down and Philip's dislike of being mollycoddled is well known. If he's in the hospital, they can be sure of keeping him in bed and a good eye on his recovery. I bet he is chomping at the bits to be released though. For a man of nearly 91, he really is quite remarkable.

Loved this little pic from today's Daily Mail:
Caption is: Prince Philip to his doctor: "First visit and all she said was: "Move Over!"



Isn't that sweet? The shoes, the handbag, the hat? Wonder why she didn't bring a corgi, too. But then, it's a hospital room...

Infections can become more problematic for the eldery. Their immune systems aren't as robust and administered treatment often requires generous time frames. As a precaution the elderly are often kept under observation so ensure their health is well restored.

The wind and rain didn't come just from above but from an angle - dry up to a point but there were certainly cold.

Oh that is just delightful

Best wishes to HRH for a complete & speedy recovery!

Love that cartoon and I'm so glad that he'll be home for his birthday.

I'm not a medical professional, but I know from experience that such infections can recur if they aren't treated promptly. An acquaintance of mine had a father who was hospitalized and developed a recurring UTI. He was set to be discharged numerous times, and each time his infection came back. Then when he finally came home, he started showing symptoms of an infection within two weeks because he refused take his fluids.

Hopefully Philip won't be as ornery and lets his wife and kids fuss over his health when he gets home.

Thank you for the info. I'm glad they're taking precautions and I agree - I hope he follows orders once he's home.

Having had a sever urinary tract infection while in the process of flying home from a third world country. It starts as minor flu symptoms. Body aches, fever,etc. it comes on very quickly and becomes excruciating. When I got home, and straight to a dr from customs, I was given very strong antibiotics and was told no extreme changes in two days, I was going to be put in the hospital because the next strongest antibiotics were IV only. I was 23, not 91. This could all be exactly what we are being told. It gets into his blood stream, and there could be big problems, at any age.

I expect that the main reason he was hopitalised was that the antibiotics had to be administered intravenously. Sounds like he is progressing well and will be home soon. I wish him all the best.

I think this shows the absolute dedication of the Duke to his wife and his country. He must have felt rough on the day of the pageant though you'd never know it by his smile and his remarkable effort. Still boggles the mind why they'd think it was a good idea to put a (nearly) 91 year old man on a boat in the pouring rain and wind but there we are. I hope HRH gets better very very soon.
