The palace said the Monarch is likely to remain at the castle beyond the Easter period.

A Buckingham Palace source was forced to denying rumours circulating social media recently that the Duke of Edinburgh had died.

Earlier this week, Twitter was flooded with false reports and fake news Philip, who turns 99 this June, was dead.

However, speaking to the Express, Telegraph editor Gareth Davies said: "Source close to Buckingham Palace tells me he's absolutely fine."

At the end of last year, Prince Philip had been admitted to hospital.

He spent four nights at King Edward VII hospital "for observation and treatment in relation to a pre-existing condition".
