It read, 'His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London this afternoon, for planned surgery on his hip which will take place tomorrow'.

Prince Philip is on the road to recovery.

Buckingham Palace said in a short statement: "The Duke of Edinburgh has undergone a successful hip replacement operation".

Buckingham Palace said the surgery went well and that he is "progressing satisfactorily at this early stage" while staying in "good spirits", local news outlets reported. "He is comfortable and in good spirits". He is thought to have been suffering with hip pain for a month, during which he missed church services on Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday. Most can be mobile 24 hours after surgery and increase their activity every day after that, he said.

It is understood, however, that The Queen's husband will be operated on while he is under a general anaesthetic.

Philip announced his retirement from royal duties in May and curtailed most of his charity work although he still accompanies the Queen on occasion. At times blunt to the point of rudeness, Philip is Elizabeth's most important support.

A source previously told ET that the Duke has been experiencing health issues for quite a while, and has "been admitted to the hospital several times in recent years". He accompanied the queen on visits overseas as late as 2015.

King Edward VII is the private hospital of choice for the royal family and has been treating members of the monarchy for decades.

The royal couple were married on November 20, 1947 when they were still Princess Elizabeth and Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten, at Westminster Abbey.
