Prince Philip is on the move again. 

"Following The Duke of Edinburgh’s successful procedure at St Bartholomew’s Hospital on Wednesday, His Royal Highness has been transferred to King Edward VII’s Hospital this morning. The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for continuing treatment for a number of days," Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Friday, March 5, which was obtained by The Royal Observer.

Just one day earlier, the palace updated the public on the 99-year-old's health condition. “The Duke of Edinburgh yesterday underwent a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St Bartholomew’s Hospital,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Thursday, March 4.

“His Royal Highness will remain in hospital for treatment, rest and recuperation for a number of days,” the statement added.

Philip was first admitted to King Edward VII's hospital in February as "a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness's Doctor, after feeling unwell." 

Shortly after, the Duke was "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."

Philip's wife, Queen Elizabeth II, has been keeping busy as he remains in the hospital and is trying to be positive during this tough time.

"It's a lot to take on. But as usual, Elizabeth is handling the stress and sadness with great dignity," an insider said, adding that Prince William, Duchess Kate and the rest of the family have been "rallying around her."

The Queen has even added two more members to her family — corgis! — to help her through this difficult situation. 

“The Queen is delighted. It’s unthinkable that the Queen wouldn’t have any corgis,” an insider said. 

The source continued: “It’s like the Tower of London not having any ravens. They have only been there a couple of weeks but are said to be adorable and made the castle their home. Both are said to be bringing in a lot of noise and energy into the castle while Prince Philip is in hospital.”
