British royal officials say Queen Elizabeth II's husband has been taken to the hospital after experiencing chest pains.

Buckingham Palace said Friday the Duke of Edinburgh was taken from Sandringham, the queen's sprawling estate in rural Norfolk, to the cardiac unit at Papworth Hospital in Cambridge for "precautionary tests."

Prince Philip, who is 90 years old, was at Sandringham for the royal family's Christmas festivities.
