  • Prince Philip 'in good spirits' after hip surgery

The palace said the prince entered the King Edward VII Hospital on Tuesday afternoon and would have the surgery on Wednesday (tonight NZT).

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.

Ananda Nanu, the board's president, said hip replacement patients need strong pain relief after their operations.

Buckingham Palace says the procedure for the Queen's 96-year-old husband had been planned.

Queen Elizabeth II's husband Prince Philip is "comfortable and in good spirits" after he underwent a planned hip replacement surgery in a London hospital on Wednesday.

"Any operation and any anaesthetic carries some risk", she said.




PRINCE Philip is in "good spirits" after undergoing a successful surgery on his hip, Buckingham Palace has said.

Philip, or the Duke of Edinburgh as he is known in Britain, retired from public life last August. "That's more important than someone's chronological age".

Last June, Philip spent two days in hospital as a precautionary measure for the treatment of an infection and he pulled out of another event in March because of ill health, according to British newspaper reports.

King Edward VII is the private hospital of choice for the royal family and has been treating members of the monarchy for decades.

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.

Prince William and his wife Kate are expecting their third child this month, and Prince Harry plans to marry American actress Meghan Markle on May 19 at Windsor Castle.
