LONDON  - Britain’s 91-year-old Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth, was taken to hospital in Scotland as a “precautionary measure”, Buckingham Palace said. “He was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as a precautionary measure,” a Palace spokeswoman said. “We don’t have any further details and are waiting for the Duke to be medically assessed.” Two months ago, Prince Philip was taken to hospital with a bladder infection, overshadowing four days of celebrations for the queen’s 60th year on the British throne.
