Prince Philip, who missed Monday’s concert, will not attend the national service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral on Tuesday.
Buckingham Palace said Prince Philip, 90, had been taken to the King Edward VII Hospital in London from Windsor Castle as a “precautionary measure” and will remain in hospital under observation for a few days.
This is the second time in six months that the 90-year-old prince has had to go to hospital.
However, he appeared to be well when he accompanied the Queen on Sunday on the royal barge at the Jubilee river pageant on the Thames.
The Queen joined 12,000 others at the Jubilee concert at the palace where top performers including Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Sir Cliff Richard, Robbie Williams, Cheryl Cole, Gary Barlow, Will.i.am, Stevie Wonder, Jessie J and Annie Lennox sizzled the stage.
The Diamond Jubilee Concert was shown on BBC big screens in 22 towns and cities throughout the UK.
The queen ended the concert by pressing a diamond-shaped crystal, igniting a beacon in The Mall marking her 60 years on the throne.
Today’s service at St Paul’s Cathedral will be followed by two receptions, a lunch at Westminster Hall and a carriage procession to Buckingham Palace, with a balcony appearance by the Queen and a fly-past.
