Prince Philip is recovering in the hospital after undergoing “successful” surgery for his heart condition, Buckingham Palace said on Thursday.
A spokesperson for the palace said of Queen Elizabeth's husband: “The Duke of Edinburgh yesterday underwent a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St. Bartholomew's Hospital. His Royal Highness will remain in hospital for treatment, rest and recuperation for a number of days.”
The 99-year-old was transferred to St. Bartholomew's after spending almost two weeks at King Edward VII hospital. In 2011, he underwent surgery to insert a coronary stent and relieve a blocked artery.
