World news – Prince Charles visits father Prince Philip, 99, in the hospital


The men spent about 30 minutes together at King Edward VII’s private hospital, where Philip was admitted for « observation and rest, » Tuesday night after his illness, the Associated Press reported. He is expected to be released next week.

Philip, who will turn 100 on June 10, is not believed to have COVID-19. He and his wife, Queen Elizabeth, 94, received their coronavirus vaccinations in January.

A masked Charles, 72, came to visit by car. The hospital only allows visitors in « exceptional circumstances » due to the pandemic, according to its website.

Philip has rarely gone public since stepping down from royal duties four years ago. In July he attended a military ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

On February 9, Philip and the Queen welcomed their ninth great-grandchild, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, son of Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank.

The Princess, the younger daughter of Prince Andrew, chose the name Philip as a tribute to her grandfather.
