Britain's Prince Philip taken to a hospital

Britain's Prince Philip was taken to a hospital on Friday for "precautionary tests" after complaining of chest pains, a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said.

He was taken from Sandringham to the cardiothoracic unit at Papworth Hospital in Cambridge, she said. The royal family traditionally spends Christmas on the Sandringham Estate.

Philip, the husband of Britain's Queen Elizabeth, is also known as the Duke of Edinburgh. He turned 90 in June.

    I'm a pretty big admirer of the British monarchy. I hope he'll be alright. It's a shame he will probably be in the hospital over the holiday, a time rather spent with family.
