Prince Philip 'in good spirits' after hip surgery

Some media reports in the United Kingdom indicated that the timing of Prince Philip's hip replacement surgery was in preparation for the activities that will be involved in the royal wedding ceremony.

The exact nature of Philip's hip problem was unclear but Buckingham Palace said an update on his health would be given when appropriate. He is progressing satisfactorily at this early stage. It read, 'His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London this afternoon, for planned surgery on his hip which will take place tomorrow'.

The duke's hip problem forced him to miss the annual Maundy Service with the Queen last week which this year was staged at Windsor Castle's St George's Chapel.

The Queen's 96-year-old husband, Prince Philip, has been admitted to a London hospital for a previously scheduled hip surgery, Buckingham Palace says.

He is said to be "comfortable and in good spirits". Most can be mobile 24 hours after surgery and increase their activity every day after that, he said.

Philip announced his retirement from royal duties in May although he still accompanies the Queen on occasion.
