Prince Philip won't be coming home from the hospital just yet. On Monday, the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was transferred from King Edward VII's Hospital to another London facility, St. Bartholomew's Hospital, Buckingham Palace confirmed in a statement. 

The palace noted that the husband of Queen Elizabeth II will continue to be treated for an infection in addition to undergoing 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," Buckingham Palace shared in the statement. 

Philip was first hospitalized on Feb. 16 at the advice of his doctors. At the time, the Palace called the hospitalization "a precautionary measure" for "observation and rest." 

Several days after he was first hospitalized, a royal source told ET, "The doctor is acting with an abundance of caution. The Duke remains in good spirits."

Prince Charles visited his father in the hospital last week, while Princess Eugenie revealed that her newborn son's name, Philip Hawke Brooksbank, was partly inspired by her grandfather. 

"On his grandfather's birthday weekend, thinking of my grandfather, we are introducing our little boy," she wrote on Instagram. "He is named after his great grandfather and both of his great x5 grandfathers."
