Prince Philip has been admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London after coming down with an infection. According to the Associated Press, the Duke of Edinburgh came down with an infection and was hospitalized “as a precaution.” The infection was caused by a “preexisting condition” and does not sound extremely serious. The palace said that Prince Philip, 96, is “in good spirits” and that he is already up and out of bed.

“Prince Philip is in good spirits and is disappointed to be missing the State Opening of Parliament and Royal Ascot,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

The Duke of Edinburgh attended the Royal Ascot on Tuesday with his wife, Queen Elizabeth II. This morning, the made her speech in Parliament and she plans to attend the Royal Ascot festivities this afternoon. She will be kept abreast of any and all developments relating to her husband’s condition.

Back in December, the palace announced that the Queen had canceled her annual train trip because she and Prince Philip had come down with “heavy colds.” The two were scheduled to go to Sandringham on a Friday, but were forced to rest until the following week. Prior to that illness, which is believed to have been the flu, Prince Philip hadn’t come down with the flu in over 40 years.

Last month, the Queen called an emergency meeting at the palace. Rumors started circulating that Prince Philip had passed away. However, the next day, the palace announced that the Duke would be stepping down from his royal duties beginning in August. It is believed that his advanced age was the ultimate factor in this decision.

“Prince Philip will attend previously scheduled engagements between now and August, both individually and accompanying The Queen. Thereafter, The Duke will not be accepting new invitations for visits and engagements, although he may still choose to attend certain public events from time to time,” the palace said in a statement at the time.

Dear people of Nigeria,
I understand from gatesnotes.com,the blog of BILL GATES,American government is planning to cut 1percent social HELP.Billgates himself revealed his anguish and worries about this CUT.
This 1percent help would be more useful in the treatment of Ebola,malaria,dengue,and polio vaccination and may be sanitation.
But what we can do,
This is an appeal to the people and government, governing bodies ,ministers,religious leaders of 🇳🇪Nigeria to request trump and trump government to allow this social training fund.
All we can do is request to all the party sitting senators of USA congress and MR.trump,himself,,,to avoid this deep cut.

You REALLY don’t know what you’re texting about!… and you REALLY don’t know who the English are? Whoever STOLE, will be held to account!… nevertheless, the purpose for the descendants of the House of Joseph, was– and is!– TO PROVIDE STABILITY TO THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD!… AND, UNTIL CHRIST RETURNS! And if you are ignorant of the role of the House of Joseph!… the House of Joseph, is a family of the Tribes of Israel! And though not Jewish (i.e., a part of the Priests of Israel!), these are promised members of GOD’s chosen families! The Throne upon which English Kings and Queens have been Coronated, is the Throne upon which KING DAVID sat, and upon which, Jesus Christ will– Himself!– soon be seated! And beneath this CORONATION THRONE, is Jacob’s Pillar Stone!… upon which Jacob slept, and who witnessed the Angels of the Lord ascending to, and descending from, THE THRONE OF THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! You would be best in seeking God’s wisdom concerning God’s chosen family!… and requesting His grace! Those who have committed evils in the name of England, will be dealt with in God’s due time! The families of the House of Joseph, are not merely people wearing Crowns!
