Prime Minister Boris Johnson today led well-wishers, MPs, journalists and charities sending ‘thoughts and prayers’ to the Duke of Edinburgh.

Prince Philip, 99, was taken to the private King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone, London yesterday. It was a ‘precautionary measure’ and is expected to remain there for a few days, Buckingham Palace said.

However, his illness is not coronavirus-related and it is understood that the decision to admit the Queen’s husband was taken with an ‘abundance’ of caution.

Philip was driven to the hospital by car before walking in unaided, with Royal sources revealing that he remains in ‘good spirits’. The Queen, 94, has stayed at Windsor Castle.

Meanwhile, Mr Johnson today led the public in wishing Philip well, with a No10 spokesman saying: ‘The Prime Minister sends his best wishes to the Duke of Edinburgh as he undergoes a few days of rest in hospital.’

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: ‘Really sorry to hear that HRH the Duke of Edinburgh is in hospital. Sending him my best wishes for a speedy recovery.’

Alexander Stafford, Tory MP for Rother Valley, tweeted: ‘Wishing His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh a speedy recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with him today.’

The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), of which Philip has been a patron, also wished the Duke well. Its chief executive Neil Heslop told MailOnline: ‘We are very sorry to hear The Duke of Edinburgh has been admitted to hospital and we wish him a speedy recovery. tknews
