When people reach a certain age, the wisest thing to do is stop working and enjoy the rest of their lives quietly and calmly.

Members of the Royal Family are no different, which is why Prince Philip chose to retire from public duties last year. He has not stopped attending the church services, though, as it is not something too physically demanding.

ET Online reported that Philip is not feeling that good as he missed the traditional Royal Maundy Service at St. George’s Chapel that took place on March 29, 2018. The source pointed out that the reason was his recurring hip problem.

Buckingham Palace confirmed the news sharing a statement saying that His Royal Highness decided not to attend, but they didn’t give any more details on his condition.

Despite the fact that Philip, 96, wasn’t present, Queen Elizabeth, 91, attended the ceremony wearing a royal blue coat and matching hat. It is not the first time he has opted out of an event for health reasons in the last month.

While any member of the Royals has confirmed that he was scheduled to attend, it is said that Philip was pulled out of a ceremony on the grounds of Windsor Castle last week.

The same source added that he has been admitted to the hospital many times in recent years, which suggests that his health is getting worse little by little.

One of the most interesting aspects of the most recent incident is that the church service took place at the same chapel where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get married on May 19.

Harry and Markle really hope that Philip’s health issues don’t make him opt out of the ceremony as Harry chose that venue partly because of the convenience of his grandfather.

The details of his conditions have not been revealed. All that is left to do is wait and see if he manages to get healthy and strong for the upcoming wedding.
