News from The Associated Press

British royal officials say Queen Elizabeth II's husband has been taken to the hospital after experiencing chest pains.

Buckingham Palace said Friday the Duke of Edinburgh was taken from Sandringham, the queen's sprawling estate in rural Norfolk, to the cardiac unit at Papworth Hospital in Cambridge for "precautionary tests."

I do hope he's alright and returns to Sandringham shortly, wouldn't want him to miss out on all the fun.

Sonjapearl 12-23-2011 03:48 PM

Whoa, I hope its nothing. I mean, yes he is 90, but I hope everything works out for the best. Especially at this time of year!

Can't seem to find anything else right now, guess we'll be updated a little later on once tests come in.

Here's a little something

Prince Philip is Papworth hospital. Palace not giving more details.


Lumutqueen 12-23-2011 03:53 PM

I'd rather he miss out on the fun and recover his full health. Prince Philip is strong and determined, let's hope it was just the Queens cooking.

True, so let's hope he'll make it for the Jubilee.

LadyGabrielle 12-23-2011 03:55 PM

Well I really don't think it would be the same without him. I'm not saying to rush the recovery but I meant more along the lines of I hope he's able to atleast come home and be with his family for Christmas even if that means he doesn't do as much as he would normally do.

No the palace will not release anymore details for the time being they said. I'm guessing once tests come in we'll hear more from the Palace.

Palace say Prince Philip is in hospital for precautionary tests. He has taken medication for heart condition for years.


agami.pearl 12-23-2011 03:57 PM

He's undergoing tests. Still no informations if he'll spend night in hospital.

Baroness of Books 12-23-2011 03:59 PM

I'm sure he's in the best of hands and I hope everything turns out well. My best wishes for his recovery.

It all depends on how serious the chest pains and possible injury are I guess. Christmas can always come to the hospital, even for royalty. :smile: It may not be the same without him, but a full recovery and missing Christmas day is better than the alternative should this be a serious matter.

Sounds very promising as they say the hospitalization is for tests. Could be a mild pneumonia at this time of year, too. Hope to hear more soon.

LadyGabrielle 12-23-2011 04:07 PM

Yes, you are right Lumutqueen. He may be a tough old man but he is old. His health is more important than anything else. Our thoughts and prayers for him. :flowers:

Molly2101 12-23-2011 04:09 PM

I do hope everything is ok, although we know his age is obviously a worry. I hope he is well enough to return to Sandringham, even if he does not attend church. As long he is discharged from hospital.
