Prince Philip, 96, admitted to hospital for planned hip surgery

The Duke of Edinburgh will undergo the surgery at the King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone tomorrow.

The Duke of Edinburgh has been admitted to hospital in central London for planned surgery on his hip, Buckingham Palace has said.

Philip's surgery comes after he was forced to miss out on numerous events over the Easter period due to problems with his hip.

"There's no cause for alarm but frankly he's a proud man and doesn't want to appear crocked in public".

A royal source told Reuters: "The duke was keen to attend but made this decision because he was experiencing some trouble with his hip".

Before resigning his position as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards at the end of a year ago, Prince Philip officially retired from his public life earlier in 2017. Last November, royal expert Kate Nicholl told ET that Prince Harry's special bond with his grandfather is behind both the timing and venue for his upcoming nuptials.

His Royal Highness, who has been married to Queen Elizabeth II for 70 years, did not attend Easter services with his wife at Windsor Castle on Sunday, April 1.

The palace has not confirmed whether his ongoing hip issues were the reason that the prince the opportunity to formally hand his role over to his son, a change in leadership that actually took place at the end of 2017.

His final solo engagement was in August a year ago, when he reviewed a parade of Royal Marines outside Buckingham Palace in his capacity as Captain General of the corps.

Last June, Philip spent two days in hospital as a precautionary measure for the treatment of an infection and he pulled out of another event in March because of ill health, according to British newspaper reports. It said the hospital admission and surgery were planned.
