Prince Philip Hospitalized With Bladder infection
Jon Scott reported that Prince Phillip has been taken to the hospital for a bladder infection amid the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Here is the latest from NewsCore:
LONDON -- The Duke of Edinburgh, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, was taken to a hospital Monday after developing a bladder infection.
A statement from Buckingham Palace said Prince Philip, 90, had been taken to King Edward VII hospital in London from Windsor Castle as a "precautionary measure" and was being "assessed and treated."
It added that he was expected to rest there for a few days under observation.
"He is, understandably, disappointed about missing this evening's Diamond Jubilee Concert and tomorrow's engagements," the statement said.
Monday night's concert at Buckingham Palace is expected to include performances by Paul McCartney, Elton John and Stevie Wonder. Prince Philip will also miss a national service at London's St Paul's Cathedral.
It was unclear if the queen would still attend the concert.
The queen and Prince Philip spent Sunday sailing along the Thames in wet weather amid a flotilla of 1,000 vessels, part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations marking her six decades on the throne.
Prince Philip was last taken to the hospital in December after experiencing chest pains. He was subsequently treated for a blocked coronary artery and released a few days later.
