In an interview with Sky News, the 56-year-old son of Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Edward, noted that his father is feeling much better and is looking forward to being able to be discharged from the hospital. When asked if Prince Philip was upset that he was in the hospital, his son laughed and replied that perhaps quite a bit.
