The Duke of Edinburgh, 96, pulled out of three royal commitments in recent days, and has now been admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London, where he will undergo his procedure this Wednesday.
According to a recent report, Philip has been suffering from a painful hip problem.
"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," said Buckingham Palace in a statement. "Further updates will be issued when appropriate."
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Prince Philip was hospitalized with a severe infection in June of 2017. A month before, the Palace announced Queen Elizabeth's longtime husband would be retiring from his royal duties after serving over 70 years in public service. Though he was battling various ailments at the time, royal insiders assured he was in "good spirits."
