London: Buckingham Palace says Prince Philip will likely remain hospitalised for a few more days while receiving treatment for a recurring bladder infection.

The 91-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary yesterday.

The palace said today that he is responding well to treatment, but it was unclear when Philip would be released. It said "he is likely to remain in hospital for a few more days."

It is Philip`s third hospital stay in the last eight months. He was hospitalised for five days in June with a bladder infection that may have been aggravated by his appearance at a flotilla marking the queen`s 60-year reign.

In December, he underwent a successful coronary stent procedure to clear a blocked artery.
