The 99-year old prince was admitted last week to King Edward VII’s hospital in Marylebone as a “precautionary measure” for an undisclosed ailment. Charles was seen arriving at the back of the hospital Saturday afternoon for the visit.
By Sunday afternoon London police officers were seen outside the hospital where the Duke of Edinburgh is being treated.
