© KCS Prince Philip hospitalized: his return to Elizabeth II postponed At each news about Prince Philip's health, the British people hold their breath. Last week the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, was admitted to hospital. He is still not out of it and the end of his stay is not planned for now. On June 10, Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, will celebrate his 100th birthday. But this event will only be celebrated if the Duke of Edinburgh's health permits.
Prince Philip has been moved back to the private King Edward VII hospital in London after undergoing a successful heart procedure earlier this week.
Buckingham Palace said the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was transferred on Friday morning (local time).
He is expected to remain in hospital for several more days.
"Following The Duke of Edinburgh's successful procedure at St Bartholomew's Hospital on Wednesday, His Royal Highness has been transferred to King Edward VII's Hospital this morning," the palace said in a statement.
Prince Philip summoned Prince Charles to hospital for frank conversation about the future of the royal family
As the Duke of Edinburgh approaches two weeks inside a London hospital, there are fresh claims about exactly why Prince Charles visited his father. The Prince of Wales spent around 30 minutes inside the King Edward VII's Hospital last week, days after the duke's admission. Prince Charles made the 320-kilometre round trip from Highgrove House in Gloucestershire to London to see Prince Philip who entered the hospital the previous Tuesday with an infection.
"The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for continuing treatment for a number of days."
Prince Philipafter he had felt unwell for several days.
The palace later said, and that his illness was not related to COVID-19.
Last Monday he was transferred by ambulance to St Bartholomew's, or St Bart's as it is known, which has one of the UK's leading specialist cardiac centres.
The palace said Prince Philip was taken to St Bart's to "undertake testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition".
Prince Philip has previously been treated for a blocked coronary artery just before Christmas in 2011.

Why isn't Prince Harry and Meghan's son Archie a prince? Does it have anything to do with race? .
If Archie Mountbatten-Windsor grows up to bemoan his lack of princely status, he may have his great-great-great-grandfather to blame. A decree issued by King George V — the Queen's grandfather — in 1917 limits the titles of prince and princess to the children of the monarch, children of the monarch's sons and "the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales".Bob Morris from the Constitution Unit at University College London said the rule was introduced to trim the increasingly unwieldy number of royal titles.
