Prince Philip was transferred to another hospital to continue treatment.


Prince Philip was transferred to another London hospital to continue treatment for an infection, Buckingham Palace said on Monday.

According to the palace, Felipe, 99, was transferred from the Hospital del Rey Eduardo VII to the Hospital de San Bartolomé. The Bart’s Heart Center is the largest specialized cardiovascular center in Europe, the National Health Service said.

In addition to treatment for an unspecified infection, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband will also undergo testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition.

Philip was admitted to King Edward VII Private Hospital last month after feeling ill. Royal officials called her admission to the hospital a precautionary measure.

The palace says Philip “remains comfortable and is responding to treatment, but is expected to remain in the hospital until at least the end of the week.”

Philip’s illness is not believed to be related to COVID-19. He and the 94-year-old queen received a first dose of a coronavirus vaccine in early January.

Philip, who retired from royal duties in 2017, rarely appears in public. During the current coronavirus lockdown in England, Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, has been staying at Windsor Castle, west of London, with the queen.
