Photographs from outside the hospital show Charles arriving at the hospital in a grey suit. It comes as Prince Philip, 99, remains in King Edward VII’s hospital in London. Prince Philip has been in hospital since Tuesday evening and is expected to remain there for several more days.
On Wednesday, Buckingham Palace said in a statement: “His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital in London, on Tuesday evening.
“The Duke’s admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’s Doctor, after feeling unwell.
“The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest.”
Royal sources have confirmed Prince Philip’s hospitalisation was “not an emergency admission”.
A royal source said the issue was not coronavirus-related, that he was taken to hospital by car and not an ambulance, and he walked inside unaided.
