Prince Philip has been transferred by ambulance to a second hospital, after spending nearly two weeks in a private ward after being admitted for an infection.
The 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was taken to St Bartholomew's Hospital, Buckingham Palace said in a statement.
"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 the palace said.
"The duke remains comfortable and is responding to treatment but is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week."
Photos from outside the hospital show an ambulance leaving King Edward VII's Hospital at about 11am.
Security guards were seen holding up umbrellas to maintain the duke’s privacy as he was transferred to another hospital.
The 99-year-old was taken to hospital as a "precautionary measure" on February 18 after "feeling unwell"
His eldest son, Prince Charles was seen visiting his father’s bedside and on his drive from the hospital it appeared the future king had tears in his eyes.
It’s been a challenging start to the year for the royal family, with Prince Philip’s hospitalisation and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle making their exit from the fold permanent.
Yesterday, the first trailer for their highly anticipated interview with Oprah Winfrey was released, where the TV host was heard asking Meghan: "were you silent, or were you silenced?"
Oprah can also be heard saying to both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex: "You've said some pretty shocking things here".
The interview is set to air on CBS this Sunday, March 7th.
