JUBILEE: Prince Philip taken to hospital
PRINCE Philip has been taken to hospital today.
The Duke of Edinburgh is suffering from a bladder infection and has been hospitalised as a precaution, Buckingham Palace has just confirmed.
It is understood the Duke was at Windsor Castle when he was taken ill during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations marking The Queen's reign.
Philip, 90, was taken to the King Edward VII Hospital in London from Windsor Castle earlier today as a precautionary measure.
He will remain in hospital under observation for a few days, said a palace spokeswoman.
The news was released just hours before the Diamond Jubilee concert was due to begin in front of Buckingham Palace.
The spokesman said the Queen would still be attending Monday night's concert.
The statement about the Duke's health said: "HRH The Duke of Edinburgh was taken to King Edward VII Hospital in London this afternoon, from Windsor Castle, as a precautionary measure after developing a bladder infection, which is being assessed and treated.
"Prince Philip will remain in hospital under observation for a few days.
"He is, understandably, disappointed about missing this evening's Diamond Jubilee Concert and tomorrow's engagements."
In St James's Park retired teacher Kate Gregory, 62, from Stourbridge in the West Midlands, said: "I feel sorry for the Queen really that it has happened now, because he's always by her side.
"It is not going to be easy for her. We wish him all the best and hope he is soon better."
