The royal was admitted to King Edward VII’s hospital in mid-February as a precautionary measure after feeling unwell. Earlier this week he was transferred to St Bartholomew’s hospital in central London for further treatment.
“The Duke of Edinburgh yesterday underwent a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St Bartholomew’s hospital,” the palace said, as cited by the Guardian media outlet.
It added that the royal would remain hospitalized for several days more “for treatment, rest and recuperation”.
This is not the first royal’s hospitalization, Prince Philip who is known for his good health is expected to celebrate his 100th birthday in early June.
Earlier, the Royal Family announced that both Prince Philip and the 94-year-old Queen Elizabeth received the first shots of a vaccine against the Coronavirus.
