Prince Philip, 99, undergoes surgery for heart condition and will remain in hospital

Prince Philip underwent surgery for a pre-existing heart condition and will remain in hospital for “a number of days,” Buckingham Palace said.

The Duke of Edinburgh underwent a “successful procedure” for a pre-existing heart condition after he was transferred from King Henry VII hospital to St Bartholomew’s on March 1.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said the operation took place on Wednesday, March 3, and will remain in hospital for further treatment.

The Palace said: “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.”

On the day of his operation, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Prince Charles’ wife, asked the country to “keep fingers crossed” for Prince Philip.

While visiting a vaccination center, the 73-year-old said the Duke’s condition was “slightly improving” but his hospital treatment “hurt at the moment.”
