Prince Philip is said to be improving after undergoing a successful heart surgery for a pre-existing condition.
The Palace reports that the Duke of Edinburgh who underwent the procedure on Wednesday, March 3, is in recovery and will remain in the hospital for treatment, rest and recuperation for some days.
Prince Philip, 99, was treated for an infection and moved to St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London on Monday for tests and observation on his heart condition.
He has already spent 16 nights in the hospital, BBC reports.
Ptincess Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall gave an update on Prince Philip’s condition during a visit to a Covid-19 vaccination centre in Croydon on Wednesday.
A volunteer had asked about the duke and Camilla said:
“We heard today that he’s slightly improving. So, that’s very good news. We’ll keep our fingers crossed”.
Members of the royal family including the Queen have continued with royal duties even as Prince Philip, who turns 100 in June, remains at the hospital.
The Prince of Wales visited his father, who retired from royal duties in 2017 at King Edward VII’s Hospital, the weekend after his admission.
