Palace: Prince Philip Has an InfectionNewser — Bob Cronin
Britain's Prince Philip, who was admitted to a London hospital a week ago, is "comfortable and responding to treatment" for an infection, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.
Doctors expect him to stay in King Edward VII's Hospital for several days, the palace said Tuesday. Son Prince Edward said his father is feeling "a lot better," the BBC reports.
"He's looking forward to getting out, which is the most positive thing," Edward said.
The palace did not reveal any other information about the infection, per NBC News.
Philip, 99, has been spending the COVID-19 lockdown at Windsor Castle with Queen Elizabeth. Both have had coronavirus vaccinations, and the palace said this hospitalization doesn't have anything to do with COVID-19.
(The palace announced a family honor for Philip while he was in the hospital.)
