Prince Philip, the 98-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II, was taken to a London hospital for observation and treatment of a pre-existing condition, Buckingham Palace announced Friday.

He was admitted to the Kind Edward VII hospital, but officials said in a statement that it was not an emergency situation and he didn’t need an ambulance.

“The admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’ Doctor,” according to the statement, which did not provide details on his condition.

Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, had been staying at the Sandringham estate in eastern England, where the royal family typically spends Christmas. He hasn’t made public appearances since 2017.

Elizabeth and Philip have been married since 1947 and he’s the longest serving consort in British history.
