The next royal I expected attending a hospital was for me HRH The Duchess of Cambridge for the birth of her child.

But I hope that The Duke of Edinburgh will be soon back at home with his family.

Latest from BBC

BBC News - Prince Philip to undergo operation on Friday

WRitten report from SKy including the statement that the PRince is feeling very well!

Prince Philip Taken To Hospital For Operation
It may not be emergency surgery but it is still very much a serious thing to put someone of the Dukes age under and open him up. The healing time and possibilities for problems to occur are very high.

Wishing the Duke a speedy recovery.

I hope Prince Philip gets well soon. It's a shame that he can't attend his birthday, Trooping the Colour and Garter day.

Not an emergency

Victoria Murphy ‏@QueenVicMirror 21m
Palace sources saying Philip's hospital stay not related to his cancelling the engagement on Monday evening when he simply lost his voice

Victoria Murphy ‏@QueenVicMirror 21m
Philip was told last week he would need the exploratory surgery during a routine examination by palace doctors

Victoria Murphy ‏@QueenVicMirror 21m
Aides say Philip walked into hospital himself and is not in pain

Yes, the bulletins will say that he feels well, but you don't get admitted to the hospital because you feel good. There's a reason he's there, and I just hope it isn't too serious.

Sad news but good to hear that it isn't an emergency. I wish the Duke of Edinburgh a swift recovery.

It's a worry. My concern is that they're now saying that the Duke knew he'd have to have this operation based on the results of tests last week. They're saying it's an exploratory abdominal procedure. It sounds pretty serious for a man of his great age. Here's hoping all will be well.

Sky news saying he likely may have had an endoscope to explore inside,going down his throat. Maybe this led to a sore throat/lose of voice

That wouldn't take two weeks, unless they expect to find something.....

According to Sky news, he had a scope down his throat which caused him some voice problems afterwards - this would have presumably to look at his oesophagus and stomach, possibly for anaemia. No doubt he had a scope up the other end too, though they haven't mentioned that one as yet!
I think this all points towards a gastrointestinal problem, rather than bladder this time.

They've already done it. By the sounds of it, they've done an endoscopy and found something that needs further investigation via surgery. The same happened with my sister a few years back and they found she had Crohns Disease. There's a thousand things it could be, some very serious and some just causing mild discomfort.

Sorry i meant it as he had already had an endescope, so this may have led to him cancelling Monday's engagements.

I'm watching the BBC Coverage. I hope the operation goes well but it must be major but I think his age must be a factor for him to be in the hospital for two weeks.

We'll miss Prince Philip at the Trooping of the Colour and Order of the Garter Ceremonies.

My thoughts and prayers are with him and the royal family and I hope Prince Philip get well soon.

Also, I did see Prince Philip cough a couple of times during the Coronation Anniversary Service on Tuesday. I don't want to speculate but that's what I saw.

I wish him a full recovery and I hope they ascertain what his ailments are. I often forget he's 92 (soon).

And scanning.

The first thing that springs to mind is possible cancer in the bladder or intestines.
First thing I thought of too. I certainly hope not. I really do love Prince Philip.

I would think 2 weeks in hospital is about right for a man of his age to recover from exploratory surgery.

The Queen Mum had a cataract removed from her left eye at 94 and in November of the same year she was admitted to hospital for a hip replacement. Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...long-life.html

Wishing Prince Philip a speedy recovery.
