According to Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II’s 99-year-old husband, Prince Phillip, will spend more time in a London hospital receiving treatment for unspecified conditions.
“The Duke of Edinburgh remains at King Edward VII’s Hospital and is being treated for an infectious disease,” the statement said.
“He is comfortable and responsive to treatment, but he has no plans to leave the hospital for a few days.”
According to the palace, Philip, who has been married to the Queen for 73 years, was admitted to a private hospital in London a week ago as a “precautionary measure” after feeling sick.
His youngest son, Prince Edward, had previously told Sky News TV that his father was “much better … and he’s looking forward to leaving.”
“So we keep crossing our fingers.”
Edward said his father was dissatisfied in the hospital, saying, “I can see the clock many times and the walls are just very interesting.”
“We received some nice and nice messages from people of all kinds, and we really appreciate it, and so does he, I’ve conveyed them.” He added.
On Monday, Prince William, Philip’s grandson, said the Duke was “ok” and was closely monitored by medical staff.
According to sources at the time, the prince was able to enter the hospital without assistance last Tuesday after arriving by private transport rather than by ambulance.
His hospitalization was not related to the coronavirus, according to palace sources. Both he and the Queen received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in January.
Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, visited his father at the hospital on Saturday but did not comment on his health.
Philip, a former naval officer, was treated at the same hospital in August 2012 after a recurrence of a bladder infection that lowered him during the celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The previous year, he was stented after suffering from an occlusion of the coronary artery.
