Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip recovering after hip surgery

Prince Philip gave up his claim to the Greek throne to marry Elizabeth

Given the recovery time for hip surgery is six to eight weeks, with patients being able to resume light activities at three weeks, there is little doubt Philip will attend the Royal Wedding.

Buckingham Palace have confirmed that Prince Philip has been admitted to a London hospital for an operation on his hip, after missing a series of events.

The Palace said Prince Philip was "comfortable and in good spirits" and is "progressing satisfactorily at this early stage".

Ms Formby, an ally of Mr Corbyn, also vowed to introduce "new procedures to deal with complaints and disciplinary cases". He added that "anti-Semitism is a vile and evil thing" and Labour had a process for dealing with it.

He had been experiencing hip problems when he missed the traditional Royal Maundy Service at St. George's Chapel alongside his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, earlier this month.

Back in August 2017, the Duke retired from 65 decades of public service, significantly more than 5 decades after the Palace originally explained he would steadily "wind down" his workload, nevertheless he remained keen to carry out a number of his own obligations.

Prince Philip has spent much of his life in good health, but was treated for a blocked coronary artery in 2011 and a bladder infection a year later. "That's more important than someone's chronological age". He was also absent at Easter services with the queen over the weekend.

They included fighters from the Faylaq al-Rahman and Ahrar al-Sham rebel groups, their families and other residents. The government's key ally Russian Federation announced on Sunday that Jaysh al-Islam had agreed to an evacuation.

When the couple announced their engagement previous year, there was surely no doubt Prince Philip would attend their wedding, but his current condition has led to much uncertainty. Buckingham Palace has said it will provide updates "when appropriate" but has not provided details about the nature of the surgery.

Prince William and his wife Kate are expecting their third child this month, and Prince Harry plans to marry American actress Meghan Markle on May 19 at Windsor Castle.

In the 1990s, the Queen Mother underwent two successful hip operations, aged 95 and 97.
