Prince William and Kate Middleton will be enjoying the traditional Royal Christmas celebration as planned despite his grandfather having a heart scare.

Prince Philip, 90, was airlifted 60 miles to a nearby hospital from the Sandringham estate where the Royal family have their festive celebrations. The large property is located about two hours from London.

The Queen, her son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, all visited Prince Philip Saturday at Papworth Hospital where he had a coronary stent fitted to treat his blocked artery. William and Kate are not expected to visit him in the hospital.

“The Duke of Edinburgh had a good night and is in good spirits but he is eager to leave,” Buckingham Palace spokeswoman Ailsa Anderson said.

“Sunday’s church service is going ahead as planned and we don’t anticipate changes to the Royal Family’s Christmas celebrations.”

It's hoped, but is uncertain, that Philip will be able to join the family back at their estate in time to see Kate make her five outfits changes on Christmas Day.

“Kate will need a casual outfit for breakfast, a smart outfit and a hat for the morning church service, a dress for lunch, a cocktail dress for early evening drinks and a full-length dress for the evening meal,” Royal etiquette expert Jean Broke-Smith told Grazia magazine.
