Buckingham Palace said on Friday that Prince Philip has been transferred to a private hospital and will continue to recover after heart surgery.
The palace said the 99-year-old British monarch received successful treatment at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital on Wednesday to treat pre-existing heart disease.
The palace said he was transferred to King Edward VII’s hospital on Friday and “is expected to stay in the hospital for a few more days.”
Philip was hospitalized and received treatment in a private hospital in London on February 16. He was transferred to a specialized heart care hospital on Monday.
Buckingham Palace says Prince Philip is restored after cardiac surgery
Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, retired in 2017 and rarely appeared in public. Before being hospitalized, he was isolated from Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle in west London.
Philip was healthy when he was old, but he suffered from heart disease in the past. In 2011, he was taken to the hospital by helicopter due to chest pain and was treated for a blocked coronary artery.

Philip is the longest-serving royal spouse in British history. He married the then Princess Elizabeth in 1947. He and the Queen have four children, eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
The preparations of the royal family coincided with the illness broadcast by members of the royal family during an interview with the Duchess of Sussex (Mushan) by Oprah Winfrey (Oprah Winfrey) on Sunday.
Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, resigned from the royal family last year and moved to California on the grounds that what they said was the unbearable aggressive and racist attitude of the British media.
