Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, has been transferred to another hospital to continue treatment for an infection and undergo testing for a heart condition.
An ambulance carrying the Duke was seen leaving King Edward VII hospital in London on Monday morning (local time).
Buckingham Palace later confirmed he was being moved to St Bartholomew’s hospital, which is also in London.
“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,” a statement from Buckingham Palace said.
