The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to hospital as a "precautionary measure" on Tuesday 16th February after feeling unwell.

Prince Philip, 99, was taken to the King Edward VII Hospital in London, the statement added.

According to a statement made by the palace, Philip was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure which is not related to Covid-19.

In December 2019, the Duke spent four nights at the private hospital for treatment for a pre-existing but undisclosed condition.

Philip is rarely seen in public after he stepped down from official engagements in August 2017.

Biden has proposed $130 billion in funds for K-12 schools in his $1.9-trillion Covid-19 relief plan, now before Congress. Biden said that smaller class sizes should be in place, and more teachers should be hired to man these smaller classes.

The prince had been feeling unwell for a short period and he walked into hospital unaided, a royal source said.

A palace source told the BBC that the duke travelled to the hospital by vehicle, where he was admitted as a precaution on his doctor's advice. "His Royal Highness would like to thank everyone who sent their good wishes", the palace rep stated.

The prince and the Queen, 94, have been maintaining social distancing rules at Windsor Castle, because their age puts them at risk from Covid.

In 2019, the Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a vehicle crash when he attempted to pull out of a driveway near the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. Elizabeth became queen in 1952, following the death of her father, King George VI.
