Royal chest infection

Prince Philip, the Queen's husband, went to hospital earlier today, suffering from a chest infection. His engagements for the weekend have been cancelled. It is unusual for the 86-year old to succumb to illness, but it is thought he may have been persuaded to attend hospital.

    May it be cleared soon.  I know pneumonia (if he ends up with that) can be deadly.  I know first hand that bronchitis is horrible.

  3. I think the Duke is an extraordinary man and I wish him well, he certainly isn`t one to tolerate anything as inconvenient as illness, God bless him. :o)

    Love Sandra xx
