Husband to Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh has been reportedly hospitalized ahead of the Queen's Speech to Parliament.

In a statement given to BBC reporters, Philip will not accompany his wife the Queen to her traditional speech to Parliament on Wednesday, for treatment of an infection from a pre-exsisting condition. Her son Charles, Prince of Wales will accompany her in his stead.

Philip, now 96-years-old, announced that he would be retiring from public duties this fall. Prince Philip has spent much of his royal career in good health, only being treated for a blocked coronary artery in 2011 and a bladder infection in 2012.
