Last June, Philip spent two days in hospital as a precautionary measure for the treatment of an infection and he pulled out of another event in March because of ill health, according to British newspaper reports.

He was forced to miss the Easter religious services last week, however, due to the problem with his hip.

The duke retired from official duties past year but has been seen in recent months driving his vehicle and attending some events with his family. In 2016, he represented the royal family at 200 engagements. At times blunt to the point of rudeness, Philip is Elizabeth's most important support.

Back in August 2017, the Duke retired from 65 decades of public service, significantly more than 5 decades after the Palace originally explained he would steadily "wind down" his workload, nevertheless he remained keen to carry out a number of his own obligations. On Thursday, March 29, he unexpectedly cancelled his appearance at the traditional Maunday service, which had also been held at St. George's Chapel, where his grandson, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle will marry on May 19.
