On Friday, her husband the Duke of Edinburgh was taken 125 miles from Sandringham to the royal family’s favoured London hospital after heeding advice from his doctor – raising fears ill health could prevent him spending Christmas with the Queen this year.
He was not blue-lighted by ambulance to the King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone and was able to walk into the building unaided this morning, MailOnline understands.
Philip, who splits his time between Windsor and Sandringham since retiring from royal duties in 2017, is receiving treatment for a ‘pre-existing condition’, Buckingham Palace has said.

The Duke is expected to be in hospital for a few days ‘for observation’ – and his admission was understood to have been planned – but it is not yet known if he will miss Christmas Day with his wife, children and grandchildren.
The family’s traditional Christmas Day church service will be held at St Mary Magdalene Church.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte could attend the service for the first time this year, according to reports.
However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be absent, instead opting to spend their first Christmas as parents with the Duchess’s mother Doria Ragland.
In recent years the Queen has been driven by chauffeur to the church on December 25 while other family members walk the short distance from Sandringham House to join her.
