Jubilee concert: big noise and a big gap as duke misses date with pop royalty
Caroline Davies, Sam Jones and Alexandra Topping
The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to hospital on Monday, forcing him to miss the Buckingham Palace concert in honour of the Queen's diamond jubilee and the other events planned for the close of the long weekend of celebrations on Tuesday.
He was taken to hospital just hours before the concert, which was opened by Robbie Williams and featured music from every decade of her reign.
The palace said the duke had a bladder infection and had been taken from Windsor Castle to the King Edward VII hospital in central London, the facility favoured by the royal family. In a statement, it said it was a precautionary measure and the duke was disappointed at not being able to attend the concert. He is expected to be kept in for observation for several days.
