The Duke of Edinburgh has been admitted to hospital for abdominal surgery, but is 'in good health,' according to officials
The Duke of Edinburgh will miss the Queen's birthday parade, the Trooping of the Colour, after being admitted to hospital for a two-week stay.
Prince Philip, 91, will undergo 'explorative' stomach surgery during the stint at a private London clinic, following investigations carried out over the past week.
He'll also spend his own 92nd birthday at the medical facility.
The Duke was admitted to hospital yesterday, after attending a garden party at Buckingham Palace, where he was seen 'in good spirits,' and 'telling jokes'.
Buckingham Palace officials were keen to stress the royal 'is in very good health,' and that his hospital stay had been planned in advance.
It's thought Prince Philip will undergo the surgery under general anaesthetic, although a spokesman said more updates would be released 'when appropriate'.
Royal Historian Kate Williams said Prince Philip 'is a man who is determined to carry on'.
'He has had seven public engagements this week. There probably aren't many people across the country in their 90s who are keeping up such a schedule,' she told the BBC.
Get well soon, Prince Philip!
