Prince Edward visits Prince Philip in hospital on his 92nd birthday
Prince Philip received a visit from his son Prince Edward in hospital on his 92nd birthday, as he continues to recover from surgery.

When asked how his father was, The Earl of Wessex said “Well, thank you.”

The Queen“s husband underwent exploratory surgery on his abdomen at the London Clinic on Harley Street on Friday.


The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to hospital for the scheduled procedure last Thursday following his attendance at the Queen”s summer garden party at Buckingham Palace.

Guns were fired in honour of the Prince from the capital”s Green Park, Edinburgh Castle, the Tower of London, Cardiff Castle and Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland.

Prince Edward spent the weekend in Stockholm, Sweden with his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex at Princess Madeleine and Chris O”Neill”s picture-perfect wedding.

After the Duke”s operation on Friday, Buckingham Palace said he was “progressing satisfactorily”.

The results from the operation are being analysed, and his hospital stay is expected to last about two weeks.

His admission to hospital came after he missed an engagement a few days previously because he felt “under the weather”.

“He is in very good health ,” a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said. “He felt unwell on Monday and missed an engagement but that was down to the fact he had temporarily lost his voice.”

Last summer, the 91-year-old spent five nights in hospital and missed some of the events for the Queen”s Diamond Jubilee celebrations due to a recurring bladder infection.
