glassy eyes of Prince Charles after visiting his father
at King Edward VII Hospital in London last Saturday do not lie.
No matter how calm they want to convey from Buckingham Palace,
concern has settled
in the United Kingdom about the state of health of the Duke of Edinburgh, who will turn 100 next June and who
spent his sixth night
At the moment, and although the
that led to his admission are not known, there is still no clear date to receive the discharge.
The situation must be serious if Prince Charles, amidst existing mobility restrictions due to the pandemic, decided to
travel more than 100 kilometers just to see his father.
There he spent half an hour by the bed of Queen Elizabeth's husband before returning to Highgrove.

a "short period of time" without feeling well,
but he did so, according to official sources, on his own foot and without the help of anyone.

his hospital admission is not related to the coronavirus,
and is that, in fact, both he and his son are vaccinated.
