[Homework]2013-06-15 91岁菲利普亲王顺利完成腹部探查手术

The Queen was supposed to be part of a double act when she arrived to open the new BBC Headquarters,but with the Duke of Edinburgh in hospital,she performed her duties as a soloist.There was never any possibility of canceling,this is the day job for the queen and the firm,as it's known,doesn't close down,just because a key executive is sick.It was hard to tell whether the prince's health was playing on her mind as her majesty pressed the BBC flash.There was live performance by the script,didn't appear to do much to lighten her mood if it was.The Queen passed up a chance to give an update on her husband condition in her formal opening announcement.But instead only mentioned the Duke of Edinburgh's BBC visit sixty years ago.
I came again with the Duke of Edinburgh just before the coronation in 1953.I was struck then as I am now by the sheer pace of change which has transformed your industry over the past sixty years.
But veteran interrogator John couldn't resist asking the question on everyone's lips.
I wanted to ask you,how is the Duke?Do you know how he is?
I have no idea.I mean,he is just only gone in.
He looked in awfully good form yesterday.
Yes he did,I suppose.
Tonight we are told the Duke has had his explored two operations.And the result will be analyzed.He said to be progressing satisfactorily.But it doesn't sound as if the prince Phillips two-week stay in hospital is likely to be cut short.So the man who for more than 60 years has been at the queen's side as her consort won't be for some time yet.And that means he will miss a string of events.
On Sunday,the Duke was meant to attend a lord's cricket match in Windsor.He will also spend his 96 birthday in hospital on Monday.On Thursday,he will miss a big military show piece,beating retreat on Horse Guard's Parade.The Queen will have to go on her own.And on Saturday,the 15th,the Duke will miss all the pompt of * the color to celebrate the queen's official birthday.But royal author says for the Queen duty always comes before everything else,including bed-ridden husband.
One of their golden rule is if you can possibly avoid it,never cancel an engagement and the Queen and Prince Phillips do most their engagement together nowadays.And if he can't be there because of bad health,there is no way the Queen will dream of dropping out herself,she knows how important it is not to let people down.And that means for the next few weeks at least,as at the BBC,the crowds and the camera phones will all be focusing solely on the Queen.
