Prince William has revealed his grandfather Prince Philip is "OK" after being admitted to hospital on 16 February.

The Duke of Cambridge, 38, who is 'besotted' with his and wife Kate Middleton's new pup after the tragic loss of family dog Lupo, explained that medics are "keeping an eye" on the 99 year old royal.

When asked about the Duke of Edinburgh's condition by royal photographer Arthur Edwards, Prince William responded: "Yes, he's OK. They're keeping an eye on him."

He is said to have then given a wink to well-wishers as he visited a vaccination centre at the King's Lynn Corn Exchange in Norfolk.

It comes as the royal's second grandson Prince Harry is reportedly in self-isolation at home in California with pregnant wife Meghan Markle, 39, and their one year old son Archie in case he needs to rush back to England if Prince Philip's condition worsens.

The publication went on to claim that Harry would be tested for coronavirus before leaving the US and again before entering the UK if he were to fly home.

Prince Harry is expected to return to England this summer but will not be joined by Meghan.

Who is in line for the throne after the Queen as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announce second child

Royal expert — and author of the couple's biography Finding Freedom — told OK! magazine earlier this month that Meghan is hoping to heal the rift between her and The Firm but won't be able to travel due to Covid restrictions.

"It seems easier at this moment for Harry to do the trip solo. But it is not Meghan's intention to snub the family. If Covid wasn't a factor, she would be there."
