The journey could take around an hour if the Queen was to visit her husband.

So far, the Prince of Wales has been the only royal to visit Philip in hospital.

Charles wore a face mask as he headed into the building and looked upset after leaving the hospital.

The hospital said that visitors would only be allowed in “exceptional circumstances”, leaving royal fans concerned.

However, following his visit, Charles travelled 100 miles back to Highgrove House in Tetbury.

Fans hoped his journey was a positive sign of his father’s condition.

Last week, the Palace said Philip went to hospital as a “precautionary measure” after feeling unwell for a few days.

However, it’s not linked to COVID-19.

There was also reports that Prince Philip’s grandson Prince Harry is isolating in his Los Angeles mansion in case the duke’s condition worsens and he needs to fly home.

According to the Mirror, a private jet was on standby and Harry is being kept “regularly informed” about his grandfather’s health.
