The Duke of Edinburgh has been admitted to hospital with an infection, Buckingham Palace said as it announced the Queen will attend the State Opening of Parliament and Royal Ascot without him.

Prince Philip is said to be in “good spirits” after being taken to hospital as a “precautionary measure” for an infection “arising from a pre-existing condition”.

Prince Charles will accompany the Queen instead of his father to the State Opening of Parliament on Wednesday.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London last night, as a precautionary measure, for the treatment of an infection arising from a pre-existing condition.

“Prince Philip is in good spirits and is disappointed to be missing the State Opening of Parliament and Royal Ascot. “The Prince of Wales will accompany The Queen to the State Opening.

“Her Majesty is being kept informed and will attend Royal Ascot as planned this afternoon.”
