Prince Philip, 99, Undergoes Heart Surgery At St Bart’s

Buckingham Palace said in a statement that Prince Philip, underwent the procedure at St Bart’s, where he’d been transferred earlier this week.

A royal reporter wrote on Twitter that the Iron Duke was fighting back and it was wonderful, and one royal fan said that it was really good news and that hopefully, he will be 100 per cent fine again soon.

Another wrote: “Poor Prince Philip. Wish him a speedy recovery.”

Prince Philip was admitted to hospital on February 16 after feeling unwell.

At the time the palace did not disclose what the Duke was suffering from, and sources emphasised the Duke had been taken to King Edward VII Hospital out of an abundance of caution.

The following week, Buckingham Palace gave an update, saying the Duke of Edinburgh was suffering from an infection.

On Monday, 14 days after he was first admitted to the hospital, Prince Philip was taken to St Bartholomew’s Hospital for testing and treatment.

The statement read: “The Duke of Edinburgh was today transferred from King Edward VII’s Hospital to St Bartholomew’s Hospital where doctors will continue to treat him for an infection, as well as undertake testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition.

“The Duke remains comfortable and is responding to treatment but is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week.”

Prince Philip was rushed to Papworth Hospital in 2011 after experiencing chest pain and received treatment for a blocked artery.

Last week, both Prince William and Prince Edward had opened up on the Duke’s health condition, and during his first face to face engagement of 2021, the Duke of Cambridge said his grandfather was okay and doctors were keeping an eye on him.

Similarly, the Earl of Wessex told Sky News that his father was a lot better, and he said that as far as he was aware, he was a lot better and his father was looking forward to getting out and that they would keep their fingers crossed.

The last member of the Royal Family to give an update on Prince Philip’s health was Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and during a visit to the Community Vaccination Centre at St Paul’s Church in Croydon, the Duchess said that they’d heard that he was slightly improving, and that was very good news.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
