Prince Philip Admitted to Hospital

    Britain's 90-year-old Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, waves as he leaves the hospital in central London on June 9, 2012 after five days of treatment for a bladder infection.  Prince Philip was taken to hospital on June 4, 2012  in the midst of the queen's diamond jubilee celebrations, less than six months after he needed treatment for a blocked coronary artery.

    Prince Philip has been taken to the hospital, Buckingham Palace said Wednesday, as a “precautionary measure” while he was vacationing at Balmoral Estate. Buckingham Palace said the 91-year-old Duke of Edinburgh is at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary due to a reoccurance of a bladder infection. Philip was admitted to the hospital twice in the past year, for heart disease in December and for a bladder infection in June.
