Royals remain at Balmoral as Duke rests in hospital


The Royal Family is staying at its Scottish retreat Balmoral while the Duke of Edinburgh remains at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment for a recurring bladder infection.

Prince Philip was taken to hospital from Balmoral two days ago, and though doctors say he is responding well to treatment he has been advised to rest.

As the BBC's Colin Blane reports from Balmoral, he was not expected to receive visitors on Friday.
