Queen Elizabeth’s husband Prince Philip has reportedly been transferred from one hospital to another to continue treatment, the Palace has confirmed in a statement. “The Duke of Edinburgh was today transferred from King Edward VII’s Hospital to St. Bartholomew’s Hospital where doctors will continue to treat him for an infection, as well as undertake testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition,” the statement read via People magazine. “The Duke remains comfortable and is responding to treatment but is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week.”

 

Come tomorrow, the 99-year-old royal will have officially been hospitalized for two weeks. The Palace released a statement about his infection a week ago. A royal insider spoke to ET Canada and revealed that despite the condition, the royal “remains in good spirits.” 

 

“His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital in London, on Tuesday evening. The Duke’s admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’s Doctor, after feeling unwell. The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest,” the Palace said in a statement after the news broke.

 

Back in January, Prince Philip along with Queen Elizabeth received their COVID vaccinations and earned praise from their grandson Prince William. Taking part in Britain’s COVID-19 vaccination roll-out to combat the coronavirus pandemic, the 38-year-old Duke of Cambridge commended his grandparents for taking part and being an example for others. “My grandparents have had the vaccine and I’m very proud of them for doing that,” William shared in a video.
