Prince Philip has returned to King Edward VII's Hospital in London, England, following his "successful procedure" for a pre-existing heart condition on Wednesday. The 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was recently transferred to St. Bartholomew's Hospital after spending half of February in King Edward VII's Hospital. On Friday, Buckingham Palace shared that he had returned to the original hospital.
"His Royal Highness has been transferred to King Edward VII’s Hospital this morning," reads Buckingham Palace's statement. "The duke is expected to remain in hospital for continuing treatment for a number of days."
Early Thursday morning, it was announced that Queen Elizabeth II's husband "underwent a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St. Bartholomew's Hospital."
