Prince Philip's hip operation to involve general anaesthetic
The husband of Queen Elizabeth II Duke of Edinburgh admitted to the London hospital king Edward VII.
It is carried out under a general anaesthetic or an epidural, with the surgeon making an incision into the hip, removing the damaged joint and replacing it with an artificial joint made of a metal alloy or ceramic.
He retired from public life previous year but has since appeared several times at royal engagements alongside Queen Elizabeth.
Both the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen had been staying at Windsor Castle. He was spotted driving on the Windsor Castle grounds as recently as last week, according to the U.K.'s Press Association. "He is progressing satisfactorily at this early stage", Buckingham Palace said in a statement. Two months later the infection recurred and he was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.
Buckingham Palace says the procedure for the Queen's 96-year-old husband had been planned.
"If Prince Philip is in a condition to attend the Windsor Horse show on May 9, he will most likely be fit to attend the wedding ten days later", adds the journalist, saying these are "key fixtures" in the Duke's diary.
