The 90-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II recently underwent an "invasive procedure of coronary stenting" after being taken to hospital with chest pains.

Speaking outside the hospital, Buckingham Palace spokeswoman Ailsa Anderson said that, "the Duke of Edinburgh had a good night and is in good spirits, but he is eager to leave".

"Tomorrow's church service is going ahead as planned and we don't anticipate changes to the Royal Family's Christmas celebrations," the spokeswoman added.

The palace said that Prince Philip would remain under observation for a "short period".
