The ear was pricked by news that the Duke of Edinburgh was in hospital. Her Majesty is being kept closely apprised. The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are on the scene. (The Duke of York’s whereabouts is presently unreported.) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge likewise are in sympathetic attendance. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex send love and support from their bijou villa in LA.
The Duchess of Sussex, of course, is expecting a new sibling for Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, which precludes international travel for her in the intermediate future. Since she and the Duke are stepping down as working royals, they will have more respite from toil in order to spend quality time with themselves.
(From deep in the arctic heart of Texas a bit of friendly fun with their highnesses. All respect to Prince Philip, and good wishes for his recovery.)
