I suppose it's against royal protocol but shouldn't the Queen be at the hospital for the operation?

The Queen doesn't visit Philip in hospital, don't think she has the past 3 times he's been in. She phones him I believe.
I don't think it's royal protocol, more if The Queen's at Philip's bedside the press are going to jump on the 'it's serious' bandwagon. Other family members visit however.

Friso is at The Wellington Hospital in North London, the DOE is at London Clinic Harley Street. London Clinic is a private healthcare organisation and one or its main buildings is a cancer centre.

Well you can attend royal engagements and still visit your husband during visiting hours, should she wish. Job or not. But it seems it's not The Queen's way to visit and it's probably at Philips insistence.

At 92 any operation is major operation.

The Queen has visited Prince Philip when he was in hospital during Christmas before last, some royals did too. She and other members of the family also went to visit him last June: Queen Elizabeth II Speaks To Staff As She Leaves The King

Interesting that he was in the hospital on this day and this time last year too:

I'm guessing there will be more private visits if he's going to be in the hospital for two weeks.

My thoughts and prayers are with Her Majesty and Prince Phillip. This is going to be a very difficult time for them as well as for their family. The Queen is a wonderful woman, but she is also a loving wife. She must remain strong even if she is sick with worry for her husband. It can not be easy! God Bless to a very special couple!!

The Queen may visit Philip at some point, she did when he was taken ill over Christmas in 2011 (but it was christmas after all) and she did when he was taken ill in the middle of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
On both times as far as i remember (and without searching to check) it was as he was nearing the end of the recovery period and not that long before he was discharged so I doubt a visit friday, maybe the end of the weeknd. 2 weeks is a long time so if he is that long it wouldn't surprise me if the Queen visits once or twice even if its very very private.

Imagine the headlines if she were!

I have no medical insight, but the information from BP is so
carefully worded that it reveals absolutely nothing; it's issued on a
need-to-know basis rather than nice-to-know! Judging from recent
photos Prince Philip does look his age! IMO it's no surprise that the ailments of old age are catching up with him! What's remarkable is
that he has been in good Health for so very long, until a few years
back!

Add almost another 11 years and you've got Philip. He'll be 92 on June 10th.

Hope Phillip gets well soon.

Maybe that is why the Queen was looking worried at the 60th anniversary of her Coronation.

Phillip needs to take it easy so that he can be with the Queen for a long time.

Why? HM trained as a mechanic during WWII, not a medic.There is nothing she could do. Her presence would just create more disturbance inside and outside the hospital than would be good for anyone.

I quite agree, my husband is always telling me when I say he should be there when someone in his family has surgery, why I am not a doctor, the queen can't go anywhere without a lot of fanfare, I know if she isn't there personally, she will be there in prayer and thoughts
God Bless the DoE!!

I think if The Queen wants to be there for the surgery, she'll be there. All the arrangements would be made for it. If not, she'll be on that phone like white on rice.
