Buckingham Palace yesterday said 90-year-old Prince Philip - husband of Queen Elizabeth II, was  hospitalized with a bladder infection.The announcement came as the U.K. was celebrating the queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The palace said he had been taken to hospital as "a precautionary measure" and would remain under observation for a few days, meaning that he would miss the latter part of the queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The palace said the prince, who will turn 91 on Saturday, was taken to the King Edward VII Hospital in London from Windsor Castle. It said he would remain in hospital under observation for a few days.  (msnbc)

    British monarchy destroyed all the other kings /maharajas and killed them in India/Srilanka/Ghana etc etc.and now shamelessly celebrating their so called jubilees. They plundered wealth of entire Asia and Africa for their well being.
    Others should curse them instead of celebrating !

    He does not like Mahinda R attending the function with the hard earned money of poor Sri Lankan.

    Maybe he wanted to avoid being seen at the Jubilee lunch with MR and the King of Bahrain.

    Independent Observer Tuesday, 05 June 2012 12:16 AM

    That's a very unkind statement, Sarcasm !!!

    did any of you srilankan people light the beacon for her highness?

    Hussain Monday, 04 June 2012 08:51 PM

    Give this poor guy a break. He is 91 years old and yesterday he stood on the Royal barge for over 6 hours during the boat festival on the Thames. He was hospitalized a few months ago too. One cannot expect even royalty to be no ailing at 91 years of age. Considering his age he has done quite well.

    aswin Monday, 04 June 2012 08:25 PM

    Be polite, remember he is 91 yrs and weak

    aafi Monday, 04 June 2012 08:10 PM

    If he is The Queen's Wife, why isn't he the bloody King?
