Prince Philip transferred to specialist cardiovascular hospital

In a statement released on Monday, the royal palace confirmed 99-year-old Prince Philip has been transferred from King Edward VII’s Hospital to St Bartholomew’s Hospital where “doctors will continue to treat him for an infection.”

The Duke will also undergo “testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition,” the statement added.

St Bartholomew’s Hospital is regarded as one of Europe’s largest specialist cardiovascular services.

According to the palace, the Duke “remains comfortable and is responding to treatment.” He is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week.

The Duke was admitted to the London hospital on 16 February due to an infection. He has been visited by his son, Prince Charles, on 20 February, who made a 200-mile round trip from Gloucestershire.

Last week, Prince William gave a brief update on his grandfather’s health during his first in-person engagement of the year, saying “he’s ok, they’re keeping an eye on him.”
