Prince Philip transferred to another hospital for heart tests

Prince Philip has moved to another hospital in London and will spend at least the rest of the week receiving treatment.

The 99-year-old was admitted to King Edward VII almost two weeks ago now, with the Palace reporting that he was feeling unwell.

He was visited there by his son Prince Charles, while other reports suggested that his grandson Prince Harry had begun isolating in the US in case he needed to travel home quickly.


Buckingham Palace then put out another statement saying that Philip was receiving treatment for an infection and would have to spend a few more days in the hospital.

It’s understood he’s now been moved to St Bartholomew’s Hospital, which specialises in cardiovascular treatments.

He’s undergoing further treatment and observation there as well as tests for a pre-existing heart condition.

Buckingham Palace has released the following statement about the Prince’s condition.

“He is comfortable and responding to treatment but is not expected to leave hospital for several days.”
