In early January, Prince Philip and his wife were vaccinated against the coronavirus, so the poor health of Elizabeth II’s husband is unlikely to be related to this particular disease. The Queen and her husband were vaccinated right at Windsor Castle, where they are together waiting for the pandemic. What kind of vaccine was used during the procedure is not disclosed.
We will remind that three years ago, Prince Philip underwent surgery on the hip joint. The intervention passed without complications, and the husband of Elizabeth II quickly recovered and left the hospital. Philip needed the operation because of his main diagnosis, which he has been suffering from for many years, osteoarthritis.
At the end of 2019, Prince Philip also went to the hospital right before Christmas. The reasons for his hospitalization were not disclosed. Then the doctors quickly managed to solve the problems of the wife of Queen Elizabeth II: just a day before the holiday he was discharged from the hospital. However, the traditional Christmas service that time, Prince Philip still missed. He decided to stay at home until full recovery.
