Prince Philip has been transferred to another hospital for treatment
The palace says Philip, the 99-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II, was transferred from King Edward VII’s Hospital to St Bartholomew’s Hospital. The Bart’s Heart Centre is Europe’s biggest specialized cardiovascular center, the National Health Service said. In addition to treatment for an unspecified infection, he will also undergo testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition, the palace said.
Prince Harry, who has been living in the United States for the past year has been advised by the palace insiders to fly to the United Kingdom for bidding a final goodbye to Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II amid the latter’s hospitalization. As per The Royal Observer report, Harry has been asked to fly back home as the royal family is severely concerned about the Duke of Edinburgh’s health. Prince Harry has been reportedly asked to bid final goodbye to his grand father, weeks after the elder royal.
Reportedly the Buckingham Palace is also making the required arrangements for a potential funeral which can also turn out to be a “massive state function”.
Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth’s husband, has been ailing since February 2021. He was first admitted to the hospital on February 16 when he complained of feeling ‘unwell’. Philip turns 100 on June 10 and his already lengthy stay in hospital has raised concerns because of his age, even though he was said to have been comfortable and responding to treatment.
