The Queen and Prince Philip have been staying in at the estate since Christmas.

The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, tweeted a prayer in support to the duke.

The duke retired from public life in August 2017.

His retirement came after decades supporting the Queen and attending events for his own charities and organisations.

Buckingham Palace calculated he had completed 22,219 solo engagements since 1952.

Since retiring from official solo duties, he has appeared in public alongside the Queen and other members of the royal family at events and church services.

He did not attend the Royal Family’s Christmas Day service at Sandringham this year.
