Prince Philip has been transferred back to King Edward VII’s Hospital in London having had a “successful” procedure for a pre-existing heart condition this week.
The Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen’s husband, was admitted to hospital on February 17, after feeling unwell.
He spent 13 nights at King Edward VII’s in central London before being moved to St Bartholomew’s Hospital on Monday.
On Wednesday, the 99-year-old underwent a procedure and was to remain in hospital for “treatment, rest and recuperation”.
The Duke’s 100th birthday is three months away and has battled an infection since being in hospital.
Buckingham Palace said: “Following The Duke of Edinburgh’s successful procedure at St Bartholomew’s Hospital on Wednesday, His Royal Highness has been transferred to King Edward VII’s Hospital this morning.
“The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for continuing treatment for a number of days.”
