Prince Philip has had a calm and peaceful first night in hospital, it has been reported.

The Duke of Edinburgh fell ill yesterday with a bladder infection following the Diamond Jubilee Pageant and was taken to the King Edward VII hospital in London.

He will be kept in hospital for the next few days as a precautionary measure.

It is still unclear what caused the illness but the Duke is expected to make a full recovery following a course of antibiotics.

The 90-year-old had treatment for a blocked coronary artery in December 2011 but is said to be in good health for his age. He is reportedly upset at missing the rest of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The Queen attended the National Service of Thanksgiving earlier today at St Paul’s Cathedral with several members of the Royal Family.
