Prince Philip Transferred to Another Hospital
The British Prince Philip was transferred to another hospital on Monday morning. Queen Elizabeth’s 99-year-old husband was taken by ambulance from King Edward VII Hospital to St. Bartholomew’s Hospital and London.
The Duke of Edinburgh has been in hospital with an infection for almost two weeks. For this, he will continue to be treated for the time being. He is also undergoing a heart examination, Buckingham Palace reports.
According to the palace, circumstances are still going well for Philip, who hopes to celebrate his 100th birthday in June. “The Duke is responding well to the treatments and will probably have to remain in the hospital until the end of the week,” said a statement.
Prince Edward announced last week that his father is doing much better and that Philip would like to go home. “So we’re keeping our fingers crossed.” British media report that the prince only had a visit from his son Charles because of the corona pandemic.
The 99-year-old prince’s health concerns are not related to the coronavirus. In January, he was vaccinated with Queen Elizabeth against Covid-19. They stay at Windsor Castle during the corona pandemic.
Queen Elizabeth’s husband has been hospitalized several times over the decades with health problems. For example, in 2011, he was operated on his heart.
