London - It has just been confirmed that Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, has been taken to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as a "precautionary measure." This is the third time in just eight months he has been admitted to the hospital.
The Buckingham Palace released a statement Wednesday in which it verified that Great Britain’s 91-year-old Prince Philip was taken to a hospital in Scotland for reasons unknown.
“He was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as a precautionary measure,” said a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace in a statement. “We don’t have any further details and are waiting for the Duke to be medically assessed.”
"We will wait for the Duke to be medically assessed and then we will issue a further advisory," Palace spokesperson told Agence-France Presse.
BBC News noted that the Duke of Edinburgh is not considered in critical condition.
The Buckingham Palace later confirmed that he was hospitalized for a recurring bladder infection.
Prince Philip was recently admitted into the hospital in June during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. He became ill following a bladder infection. His hospitalization forced him to miss various engagements, including the Diamond Jubilee Concert and a visit to Nottingham.
