Prince Philip Confessed to hospital for Operation

"He is progressing satisfactorily at this early stage", the statement reads.

The Duke of Edinburgh will undergo planned surgery on his hip at King Edward VII Hospital on Wednesday.

He also missed the Easter Sunday service traditionally attended by the royal family at St George's Chapel in Windsor to the west of London, where his grandson Prince Harry is due to marry US actress Meghan Markle next month.

The 96-year-old is likely to remain in hospital for several days.

Buckingham Palace have confirmed that Prince Philip has been admitted to a London hospital for an operation on his hip, after missing a series of events.

Details about which of the duke's hip joints was replaced have not been released by Buckingham Palace.

He is said to be "comfortable and in good spirits".
