Prince Philip, 99, the wife of Queen Elizabeth, returned today to a private hospital in London where he had been admitted in mid-February after undergoing heart surgery at another center.
At a time of crisis for the British monarchy, before a potentially "explosive" interview between Prince Harry and his wife Megan was shown in the United States, the Duke of Edinburgh was taken to St Bartholomew's Hospital in central London on Monday. There, he underwent "surgery" for a pre-existing heart problem.
"After the successful operation on the Duke of Edinburgh at St Bartholomew's Hospital on Wednesday, his height was transferred to King Edward VII Hospital this morning," Buckingham Palace said in a press release.
The prince, who will celebrate his 100th birthday in June, will remain there "for a few days to continue his treatment", the announcement added.
