Prince William reassured Brits that Prince Philip is “OK” – but doctors are still “keeping an eye on him”.
The Duke of Cambridge was visiting a vaccination centre in King’s Lynn today when he provided the update.
William told Sun photographer Arthur Edwards: “He’s OK, they’re keeping an eye on him.”

Buckingham Palace earlier confirmed he was in “good spirits”, and the stay is not related to the coronavirus.
The Duke of Edinburgh spent a sixth night in hospital on Sunday, February 21.
He was driven 26 miles from Windsor Castle in a private car and walked into the hospital unaided.
