"The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest," the palace said.
In December of 2019, Philip was admitted to the hospital "for observation and treatment" on the advice of his doctor as a precautionary measure related to a pre-existing condition. He spent four nights at King Edward VII Hospital before returning home.
The duke and the queen, who have been married for 73 years, have curtailed several traditions during the pandemic, including cancelling their large family gathering for Christmas.
