Duke of Edinburgh Current Events

I hope it is okay to start this thread, but I didn't see another one for the DoE's current events. Every time someone updated the thread about the DoE's June hospitalization, the main British Royal webpage only the words: "Prince Philip is hospital" shows on my browser. My heart sort of sinks a little because I worried that he was in the hospital again.

So could we discuss whether he is in Sandringham or Balmoral here?

There is a thread for the Duke's current events which is shared with HMQ. What you want to discuss is on the Prince PHilip in hospital thread....

He is currently in Sandringham. I've just posted info on the thread mentioned above

P Philip, who is convalescing in Sandringham, will join the Queen at her private Balmoral Estate in Scotland around the second week of Aug.

That doesn't sound good.

Two months until he is able to travel after exploratory surgery. It seems like he is unable to walk or to be moved around.

Exactly why isn't it good? Frankly the fact he feels able to travel from Sandringham to Balmoral is an achievement!

Yes he walked out of the hospital but that was 5 weeks ago and IMO the way the article was worded it sounded like he had a set back.

They said all along he would take a two month convalescence and that is what he is doing - he wasn't expected back to doing things until the 2nd week in August and that is now when he will travel to Balmoral to do the normal summer stuff there. Sounds to me as if everything is going according to plan.

You are obviously putting your personal spin on the information. I don't agree and think that before assuming the worse, wait until he is due to actually go to Balmoral - if he doesn't then perhaps there may be an issue.

Queen lands with her faithful corgis for two-month break at Balmoral Castle | Mail Online
The Queen has arrived (in style) at Balmoral

With her husband still recuperating after his recent abdominal surgery, the Queen had to rely on the company of her faithful canine companions when she arrived in Scotland on holiday today.
Dressed in a pink raincoat and familiar flowered headscarf, the monarch flew up from London to Aberdeen in a private jet to begin her two-month Highland break at Balmoral Castle.
This year, however, she will spend the first few weeks of her holiday alone as her 92-year-old husband is still recuperating from recent abdominal surgery.


Further in the article (about the DoE)

After spending several weeks with his wife at Windsor Castle, the 92-year-old has now moved to Sandringham, the Queen’s private Norfolk estate, where he continues to recover.
Doctors have given him the all-clear to join the monarch but he will make his own way up in mid-August, palace sources have revealed.

‘The Duke of Edinburgh plans to join the Queen in Balmoral in August,’ they said.
Although the Queen’s 50,000 acre private estate is remote, medics are clearly confident that if the doughty duke does feel poorly, he can still be swiftly treated.
Indeed, last August Philip was admitted to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment of his recurring bladder infection after falling ill at the royal residence.
Sources also confirmed that he still hoped to resume some ‘light duties’, including public engagements, later in the autumn.
Philip’s decision to move to Sandringham alone for the time being, however, will, inevitably, spark further fears for his health.

My continuing best wishes to His Royal Highness in his time of convalescence, for his steady and uneventful recuperation.

A cruise around the Western Isle would be the perfect tonic for Philip and The Queen as they both have always enjoyed being on the water and used to undertake that cruise on the Britannia most years during the Balmoral break.

They could even take Kate and George for his first cruise (William may join them if he isn't on duty) and that would allow the great-grandparents some time with the little fellow.

Queen's World War 3 speech: Found in the archives, the dress rehearsal for disaster | Mail Online

Quote:
The words are full of warmth, hope and comfort. But fortunately for history, the Queen never had to say them.
Deep in the corridors of Whitehall at the height of the Cold War civil servants prepared a speech for the monarch to deliver at the outbreak of World War Three between a nuclear-armed Soviet Union and the West.
In a chilling depiction of a world on the brink of nuclear destruction, she denounces the ‘deadly power of abused technology’ - and refers to her ‘beloved son Andrew’ on the frontline. However, she rallies her country behind her, declaring in the planned broadcast: ‘Whatever terrors lie in wait for us all the qualities that have helped to keep our freedom intact twice already during this sad century will once more be our strength.’
Released this morning after 30 years.

I wonder if the Queen and her staff at the time had any input into the speech and she would have actually used it or if it was completely made up just for the purpose of the excercice and would never have actually been what the Queen would have said.

It was written by Civil Servants and there's no mention The Queen had any input. It was obviously made up just in case anything occured due to the suddeness of a nuclear war a "rousing" speech might have been needed apparently. If a warning was issued, the speech would have had to have believed either immediately or when The Queen was out of London.
