Tuesday June 5, 2012

The Earl of Wessex has taken time out of Jubilee celebrations to visit his father, the Duke of Edinburgh, in hospital.

Prince Philip was admitted on Monday evening after suffering a bladder infection.

While the Queen wrapped her milestone weekend, Prince Edward and his family checked in on the Duke, telling waiting reporters he was doing “much better.”

"He's in good spirits. He's on good form" he said, adding that Philip had been watching the Jubilee events unfold on television.
