Prince Edward Shares Update on the Duke of Edinburgh

Speaking to Sky News' Rhiannon Mills today, Prince Edward revealed the Duke of Edinburgh is "feeling a lot better", adding, "As far as I'm aware, well I did speak to them the other day, so he's a lot better thank you very much indeed, and he's looking forward to getting out, which is the most positive thing. So we keep our fingers crossed." When asked if the Duke is feeling frustrated, Edward laughed and said "just a bit".

It comes as Buckingham Palace issued a statement confirming the Duke has been treated for an infection and is likely to remain in hospital for several more days. "The Duke of Edinburgh remains at King Edward VII’s Hospital where he is receiving medical attention for an infection. He is comfortable and responding to treatment but is not expected to leave hospital for several days."

It's good to hear Philip is feeling better and I'm sure he's very excited to return to Windsor soon.
