Timeline of the Duke of Edinburgh’s stay in hospital

[ad_1]

The Duke of Edinburgh today left hospital after four weeks of treatment for an infection and a heart condition.

Prince Philip, who is set to celebrate his 100th birthday in June, was helped into a black BMW at the rear of the private King Edward VII hospital in Marylebone at about 10.30am before being driven away.

The duke spent 28 days as an in-patient, making this his longest stay in hospital.

Here is the timeline of the Duke of Edinburgh’s month-long hospitalisation:

The duke is admitted to King Edward VII’s Hospital on a precautionary basis after feeling unwell.

He travels from Windsor Castle by car and is said to be in “good spirits” and walks into the private hospital unaided.

He is expected to stay for a few days.

Buckingham Palace issue a statement on the duke’s hospitlisation. They said: “His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to King Edward VII’s Hospital in London on Tuesday evening.

“The duke’s admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’s doctor, after feeling unwell.

“The duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest.”

Sources say Philip is now expected to remain in hospital for “observation and rest” over the weekend and into the next week.

The Prince of Wales makes a 200-mile round trip to see his father, spending around half-an-hour at the hospital.

Seven days after the duke was admitted, the Palace says he is being treated for an infection and is “comfortable and responding to treatment”, but is not expected to leave hospital for several more days.

The Earl of Wessex says the duke is a “lot better” and looking forward to getting out.

Philip is transferred in an ambulance to St Bartholomew’s Hospital for treatment for an infection and testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition, Buckingham Palace says.
