He is at the King Edward VII Hospital in London where he is expected to remain for a few days of observation and rest.

He later pulled out of a Battle of Jutland anniversary event in June 2016 citing a minor ailment which was followed soon after by his retirement from public duty in 2017.

The Duke of Edinburgh, 99, was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London on Tuesday, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

His admission was "a precautionary measure" on the advice of a palace doctor.

According to ITV News' Royal Editor Chris Ship, Prince Phillip "illness is not Covid related" and that "he travelled to central London by auto and it was not treated as an emergency admission".

The prince and the Queen, 94, have been maintaining social distancing rules at Windsor Castle, because their age puts them at risk from Covid. Philip's 2019 hospital stay lasted four days and he was able to reunite with the queen ahead of the royal family's annual Christmas traditions.

He was forced to give up driving at the age of 97, after smashing into a auto while driving a Land Rover near Sandringham estate in January 2019. The prince was unharmed, BBC News' royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said at the time.

He does not have a COVID-19 related illness, the royal source said. Elizabeth became queen in 1952, following the death of her father, King George VI.
