"He is progressing satisfactorily at this early stage", a palace statement said, adding that the Duke of Edinburgh is "comfortable and in good spirits".

Buckingham Palace announced on Tuesday that Prince Philip was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London, England, for the planned surgery.

He also missed the Easter Sunday service traditionally attended by the royal family at St George's Chapel in Windsor to the west of London, where his grandson Prince Harry is due to marry USA actress Meghan Markle next month.

Buckingham Palace have confirmed that Prince Philip has been admitted to a London hospital for an operation on his hip, after missing a series of events.

Ananda Nanu, the board's president, said hip replacement patients need strong pain relief after their operations. "He is comfortable and in good spirits".

Max Holloway stepping in keeps main event, raises excitement for UFC 223
He posted: "For the record, Dana called me yesterday to see if I would step in against Khabib since Max hadn't responded yet. Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the hottest, most talked about fighters in the UFC right now-and he's not slowing down.

The palace said at the time he had carried out roughly 22,000 solo royal engagements since Elizabeth ascended to the throne in 1952. His surgery comes ahead of a busy time for the royal family, with Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, due to give birth to her third child some time this month, and the wedding of his grandson, Prince Harry, with Meghan Markle on May 19.

Philip was an avid sportsman for many years and saw active duty in the Royal Navy during World War II.

He and Elizabeth celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in November.

Prince Philip is the longest-serving consort in British history. Elizabeth, usually so guarded with her personal emotions, has publicly called him the rock that she depends on.

He has suffered from other ailments as well but has not spoken about them in public.
