We offer our condolences to her and to all her family,” he said. “And we give thanks, as a nation and a kingdom, for the extraordinary life and work of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.” The prince was admitted to the hospital on Feb. 16 for “a few days of observation and rest.” Buckingham Palace later said that Philip was being treated for an infection and would stay in the hospital for a little while longer.
