Prince Philip Has Been Discharged from the Hospital and “Is in Good Spirits”
Prince Philip has been discharged from the hospital following a multiple-week stay and after undergoing a procedure for a preexisting condition.
Buckingham Palace reveals in a statement to BAZAAR.com and other outlets, “The Duke of Edinburgh has today been discharged from King Edward VII’s Hospital and has returned to Windsor Castle, following treatment for an infection and a successful procedure for a pre-existing condition.”
The statement continues, “His Royal Highness wishes to thank all the medical staff who looked after him at both King Edward VII’s Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital, and everyone who has sent their good wishes.”
Meanwhile, a palace source tells us that “the duke is in good spirits” following his hospital stay.
Reports broke in February that Prince Philip had been hospitalized as a “precautionary measure” after feeling unwell, for “observation and rest,” per The Associated Press. At the time, a palace source revealed to BAZAAR that the duke’s hospitalization was not an emergency admission, with Philip reportedly walking into King Edward VII’s Hospital independently.
Later, it was revealed that Philip was receiving treatment for an infection, and he moved from King Edward VII’s Hospital to St Bartholomew’s Hospital. A palace statement on March 1 said, “The Duke of Edinburgh was today transferred from London’s 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 of Edinburgh has returned home to Windsor Castle to be with the queen.
