PRINCE Philip has been transferred to a second hospital where he’ll remain for at least another week.
The 99-year-old husband of the Queen was taken to the King Edward VII hospital two weeks ago as a “precautionary measure” for an infection.
But Buckingham Palace today revealed the Duke has now been taken to London’s St Bartholomew hospital until at least the end of the week and added that he is also being treated for a heart condition.
St Barts is one of the country’s leading specialist cardiac centres.
Philip has so far spent a total of 13 nights being cared for by medics – his longest ever stay in hospital – but according to the Mail the Queen currently has no plans to visit him in hospital at this stage.
The Palace 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.”
