The duke’s planned admission on Friday to the private central London hospital, which has been treating members of the royal family for decades, was described as a “precautionary measure” by Buckingham Palace.
During a visit to flood-hit communities in South Yorkshire on Monday, Charles was asked about his father’s health by a reporter.
“He’s being looked after very well in hospital,” Charles replied.
“At the moment that’s all we know.”
During the visit, a woman in Fishlake asked Charles: “Sir, how is your father?”
He replied: “Alright. When you get to that age things don’t work so well.”
The Queen did not change her schedule as a result of her husband’s hospital stay.
