Prince Philip in hospital for 4 days now with a blaldder infection. It seems like a long time - anyone else thinking there is more to it than they are letting on? This is the third time this year.

Can't imagine he would be an easy patient - and would probably want to get out asap.

You can be very poorly with it so not necessarily anything more to it.

No. He's just very old and his immune system will be extremely poor so something like this will be difficult to shake off.

The "tumbleweed curse" of this forum seems to have struck again.

Here's a link to the In The News thread where there are far more posts.

And he is clearly very popular here - here's another thread started only this morning now he's recovered and dropped from the News.

What I really hate is threads like this are really posted because they OP wants to say "Is he dying/dead?"

justfab honestly not the case. I am a royalist. I genuinely did think it was a long time in hospital 'just' for a bladder infection. I know the palace never give much away and from posts from those with more knowledge than me, it's clear that it is not unusual.

And he did look very well when leaving.
