Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh, left the King Edward VII hospital on Tuesday after being treated for infection and is subject to a heart process. The 99-year-old had recovered at the private hospital after he had an open-heart surgery in St. Bartholomews.

He was later placed in a specialized cardiac care house at St. Bartholomew, for a short stay before returning to King Edward VII. He was first admitted to the hospital on 16 February. A royal source told CNN last month that his approval was no emergency and not related to Covid-19.
Philip, who turns 100 in June, retired from public life in 2017 and has been brought several times to the hospital in recent years. In December 2019, he received hospital treatment for an existing state.
The Queen and her husband spent most of the past year in the castle of Windsor, outside of London, after the Buckingham Palace moved away during the first wave of Covid-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020.
In April 2020, the Duke of Edinburgh made a rare public announcement, thanking frontline workers across the United Kingdom. Philip was born in Corfu, Greece in 1921 and has an English, Russian, German, and Danish descent. He and Queen Elizabeth II have been married since 1947.
Philips’s disease is not believed to be related to the coronavirus, and Buckingham Palace has not yet commented on the matter. Both the Prince and the Queen have received Covid 19 vaccinations in January and decided to publish the matter to encourage others to get the vaccine.
