Prince Philip, 99, discharged from hospital after a month

Prince Philip has returned to Windsor Castle after spending about a month in hospital.

The 99-year-old was initially admitted to St Batholomew’s Hospital in London for treatment of an infection.

He was then transferred to King Edward VII’s Hospital for tests and treatment for a pre-existing heart condition.


Buckingham Palace has now confirmed that he is home safe.

“The Duke of Edinburgh has today been discharged from King Edward VII’s Hospital and has returned to Windsor Castle, following treatment for an infection and a successful procedure for a pre-existing condition,” the palace said in a statement.

“His Royal Highness wishes to thank all the medical staff who looked after him at both King Edward VII’s Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital, and everyone who has sent their good wishes.”

Prince Philip’s son Prince Charles briefly commented that he’s ‘thrilled’ about the good news while visiting a Covid-19 vaccination centre.
