BUCKINGHAM PALACE STATEMENT ON PRINCE PHILIP
Prince Philip has so far spent a total of 13 nights being cared for by medics – his longest ever stay in hospital.
A statement said: “The Duke of Edinburgh was today transferred from King Edward VII’s Hospital to St Bartholomew’s Hospital where doctors will continue to treat him for an infection, as well as undertake testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition.
“The Duke remains comfortable and is responding to treatment but is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week.”
Earlier this week, Prince Edward said he had spoken to his father on the phone, who was “looking forward to getting out”.
He told Sky: “As far as I’m aware, well I did speak to them the other day, so he’s a lot better thank you very much indeed, and he’s looking forward to getting out, which is the most positive thing. So we keep our fingers crossed.
