Philip, 96, was operated on earlier on Wednesday in a planned procedure after suffering with a hip problem for about a month.

Ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding, Prince Philip will be undergoing a planned surgery on his hip.

The Duke of Edinburgh has undergone a successful hip replacement operation, Buckingham Palace has said.

"He is progressing satisfactorily at this early stage", the palace added in a statement Wednesday. "He is comfortable and in good spirits".

Prince Philip retired from 65 years of public service in August 2017, more than five years after the palace first said he would gradually "wind down" his workload, though he remained keen to carry out many of his duties.

The aging royal did not attend Easter services with the Queen over the weekend because he was having problems with his hip.

Scarlett McNally, an orthopaedic surgeon and council member of the Royal College of Surgeons, said fitness was more important than age when it came to recovering from surgery.




It is understood, however, that The Queen's husband will be operated on while he is under a general anaesthetic.

Prince Philip has been in pain for over a month now and has been forced to cancel a number of rare public engagements.

King Edward VII is the private hospital of choice for the royal family and has been treating members of the monarchy for decades.

Both the queen, 91, and Philip have suffered some health issues in recent years.

The royal couple were married on November 20, 1947 when they were still Princess Elizabeth and Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten, at Westminster Abbey.

Never one to talk about his own feelings, the queen has been more forthcoming about his worth.
