He needs rest and relaxation. Why not send Kate?

I'm surprised that Princess Michael is attending the event as she has no official role.

Good Lord he's 90 and just done a tour of Australia and he intended to go straight on to Italy? I doubt they daren't send Waity KF - Princess Michael will do a good job instead.

     11 day tour of Australia, good for him.

          Kate is not nearly ready for solo engagement abroad.

Duke of Edinburgh in hospital following chest pains

Quote
The Duke of Edinburgh has been taken to hospital in Cambridge after suffering chest pains, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.

Prince Philip, who turned 90 in June, was taken from Sandringham to the cardiothoracic unit at Papworth Hospital for "precautionary tests", the spokeswoman said.

Just caught this on the 10'clock news. Let's hope for the best. I used to live just a few miles from Papworth and it is world class - he's in the very best hands. However, I do wonder if this is more serious than they are letting on as Papworth is the place for serious heart issues. It may be he has been taken there due to his age.

10 years ago the Queen had to deal with the loss of her sister and her mother in her Jubilee year.  I do hope she won't lose Philip in her Diamond Jubilee year - but he has reportedly had heard problems for quite some time.

I agree True Brit, I live 6 miles from Sandringham, and there is large modern hospital nearby, in addition there is the private Sandringham Hospital next door.  Therefore, 50 miles to Cambridge is a long way for a 90 year old to travel for a check up and an ECG when it could be done on his doorstep.

Mooster, excellent point about the distance & ECG.  I hope and pray I'm wrong, but this situation looks pretty bad.  No story I've found yet has given word as to his current condition, a fact which I find ominous in itself.  If he were stable, or simply being monitored, they would say as much.

My dad had this done a few years ago it can be risky more so for someone of Prince Philips age. They go through the major artery in your leg put dye in to see were the blockage is and then put the stents in.

It sounds like he got the warnings before the heart attack.

The surgery was successful, and now the Press Association is reporting that Prince Philip will remain in the hospital for observation for "the immediate Christmas period."  Very, very glad to hear that he is apparently out of danger.

    It wasn't really "surgery", it was a procedure.. he should be home by Christmas Day.

Thank you for clarifying, Tatiana.  thankyou  I kept seeing the term "minor surgery" whenever "minimally invasive procedure" wasn't used, so I wasn't sure.

   Most Welcome !

                       He was wide awake, he had a local anesthetic.

                                  It will take more than that to keep this man down, he is quite amazing.

                                             I am glad to see that unlike Prince Albert, he is being appreciated for his role, whilst he is still with us.

Yes. I watched TV this evening hoping that I wouldn't see the announcement that he has passed away. Bad enough she lost her sister and mother in such close succession, a husband would be an intolerable blow. If Philip makes it to the Diamond Jubilee, she will have accomplished what even Queen Victoria never had: a husband she adores by her side for a historical occasion.
