Prince Philip was admitted to King Edward VII Private Hospital in London on February 16. He was then transferred to St Bartholomew’s Hospital where he underwent “successful” heart surgery. It has now been brought back to King Edward VII.
The Duke of Edinburgh, who will turn 100 in June, was first admitted to King Edinburgh after feeling sick at home.
He was treated for an infection before being transferred to Saint-Barthélemy on Monday for tests and observations on his heart before undergoing heart surgery on March 3.
The exact reason for his initial admission has not been revealed, but it was not related to the coronavirus, officials said.
In a March 5 statement, Buckingham Palace said: “Following the Duke of Edinburgh’s successful intervention at St Bartholomew’s Hospital on Wednesday, His Royal Highness was transferred to King Edward VII Hospital this morning.
“The Duke is expected to remain in the hospital for continued treatment for a number of days.”
