Prince William reassured Brits that Prince Philip is “OK” – but doctors are still “keeping an eye on him”.

The Duke of Cambridge was visiting a vaccination centre in King’s Lynn today when he provided the update.

William told Sun photographer Arthur Edwards: “He’s OK, they’re keeping an eye on him.”

He was taken to the King Edward VII hospital last week as a “precautionary measure”.

Buckingham Palace earlier confirmed he was in “good spirits”, and the stay is not related to the coronavirus.

The Duke of Edinburgh spent a sixth night in hospital on Sunday, February 21.

He was driven 26 miles from Windsor Castle in a private car and walked into the hospital unaided.

Grandson Prince Harry is now self isolating in California to fly home if Philip's condition worsens.

The Duke of Sussex has decided to stay at his £11million California mansion permanently while his grandfather is in hospital, in case of the need to return to the UK at short notice, the Daily Mirror reported.

It is also understood that the Prince has requested regular updates on the Duke of Edinburgh's status.

Philip, who turns 100 in June, last had a spell in hospital when he spent four nights at the King Edward VII’s in December 2019, where he was treated for a “pre-existing condition” and discharged on Christmas Eve.

A royal expert earlier guessed that Philip would be frustrated by his stint in hospital.

Penny Junor joked on BBC Breakfast that he could be "quite outspoken" towards medics during his admission for "observation and rest".

He said: "I think he can be quite blunt and I think if he felt people were fussing over him he could be quite outspoken about that.

"This is a man who doesn't want any fuss made of his 100th birthday, so the fact he's in hospital and getting some fuss made of him will really irritate him."
