"Abdominal investigations"? That sounds omnious!

Oh dear, that doesn't sound good at all. Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery to the Duke of Edinburgh.

Indeed it does, Muhler. And for such a long time as up to two weeks does not sound reassuring either.

Well, it might not be an actual surgery, but more like probes being well... it's not pleasant.
And scanning.

The first thing that springs to mind is possible cancer in the bladder or intestines.

A general anaesthetic for abdominal surgery is very high-risk in someone of this age.
Let's hope his strength and resolve can pull him through!

Okay! They are opening him up. That's makes it more serious.

This is not an emergency admission -according to BP spokesman.

In fact he was at the Garden Party this afternoon and that finishes at 1800.

Latest from BBC

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

The planned nature of this surgery would lead some to speculate that it could be cancer of some part of the gastrointestinal tract, as that would be one of the more common reasons to have 'non-emergency' abdominal surgery in this age-group.
Let's hope that's not the case.

I fear for abdominal cancer.

Of course they are going to say that. I am not saying that they are wrong but I could see BP holding back information or not releasing everything

Praying for Philip and the Royal Family! I Hope he pulls trough! Would be sad to see the Queen without Philip at her side,

By the way isn't this his Fifth or Sixth hospital visit in the last Two Years?

Hope the Duke makes a speedy recovery. Its clear now that he is no longer "fighting fit" and I suspect after this twoweek stay we'll see much less of him. He needs to rest and slow down. Hopefully it will all go okay.

I wonder if there is any particular reason he's being treated at the london Clinic rather than King Edwards VII as he has done before.

I would say that main culprit is bladder.

Dont understand - who would say what? He was at the garden party, and there are pictures to prove it so what are you saying/implying?

Special equipment perhaps? Has the London Clinic a history for special skills in regards to treatment of cancer? Or other ailments in that region?
My dad died from bladder cancer. That took a year from the diagnosis until the end and it wasn't dignified, so I sincerely hope that is not the case.
