Royal Treatment

Prince Philip’s Health Improves


According to an official statement from Buckingham Palace on Thursday, Queen Elizabeth II's husband is "responding well to treatment" for a bladder infection that put him in the hospital Wednesday. The Duke of Edinburgh spent five days in treatment for a similar infection two and a half months ago, during the Diamond Jubilee festivities. He is likely to remain hospitalized for "a few more days," according to an official, but may be healthy enough to make an appearance at the Paralympics opening ceremony on Aug. 29.
