LONDON (Reuters) – Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, visited the hospital on Saturday where his father Prince Philip is being held as a precaution after feeling ill, a Reuters photographer said at the hospital.
Charles arrived at the back of London Hospital where Philip, Queen Elizabeth's 99-year-old husband, spent four nights.
Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was admitted to the hospital as a precaution on Tuesday after feeling ill with a disease unrelated to COVID-19.
He is expected to stay in the hospital until next week, a royal source said on Friday. The doctors acted out of caution and the duke was still in a good mood.
Both Philip and the 94-year-old Queen received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in January.
In late 2019, he spent four nights in the same hospital while being treated for a pre-existing illness.
Philip is rarely seen in public these days. He stepped down from official engagements in August 2017 after completing more than 22,000 solo events and thousands more alongside the Queen.
Philip was a former naval officer known for his sometimes gruff manner and humor. He married Elizabeth in 1947, five years before she became queen. He is now by far the longest serving wife of any British monarch.
