Prince Philip undergoing hip surgery in London

The Queen and Prince Philip celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary last November.

The 96-year-old Duke was admitted to hospital yesterday and underwent surgery today. "He is progressing satisfactorily at this early stage", the palace added in a statement.

Philip, the father to Queen Elizabeth II's four children, has missed several public events in recent weeks.

After almost 70 years dedicated to public service to the Crown, Philip retired from official duties with the full support of The Queen last year.

While Prince Philip has been in a fairly healthy condition throughout his life, he had been reportedly treated for a blocked coronary artery in 2011, and a bladder infection in 2012.

The aging royal did not attend Easter services with the Queen over the weekend because he was having problems with his hip. "That's more important than someone's chronological age". Buckingham Palace has said it will provide updates "when appropriate" but has not provided details about the nature of the surgery.

When it was announced previous year that he would be retiring from official engagements, Buckingham Palace stressed that the decision was not health-related and he had the full support of the Queen.

King Edward VII's Hospital, in Marylebone, was founded in 1899 and has treated other senior members of the royal family, including the Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge.

Recovery will depend on the individual patient but, in general, doctors get patients on their feet as quickly as possible and discharge them three to five days after the procedure.
