This winter has probably been shocking for the elderly in so many places. If he's got a touch of bronchitis or something like that Prince Philip will be better off indoors.

They’ll announce if he has to go to the hospital, but I don’t think they’ll say anything otherwise.

I expect to see him on Thursday for the church service at Windsor, so we’ll see if he is there.

I like that HM still has some dogs with her running around the palace and nipping at the heels of anyone they might want to take a bit out of ......

They bark at strangers as well, apparently! I can remember Cherie Blair not being a fan. The Queen had more dogs in those days. Apparently Mrs Blair didn't get bitten (I was going to write something there but won't) but described them in memoirs as 'a moving carpet'.

The antics of the Queen's dogs are quite known and they're not the friendliest furbabies to meet. That's why Harry remarked that they've been barking and nipping at him for over 30 years and Meghan walks in and the dogs loved her.

It just isn't home for the Queen unless her dogs are there.
