PRINCE Philip has had a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition, Buckingham Palace said on Thursday.

A spokesperson for the 99-year-old prince who also uses the title of Duke of Edinburgh said the procedure took place on Wednesday and was a success.

The type of the procedure has not been made public.

“His royal highness will remain in the hospital for treatment, rest and recuperation for a number of days,” a statement from Buckingham Palace read.

Prince Philip, who is married to Queen Elizabeth II, was first admitted to King Edward VII’s Hospital in London on Feb. 16, for treatment of an infection.

He was then moved to a new hospital in London, St Bartholomew’s Hospital, on Monday, where doctors performed tests and put him under observation for a pre-existing heart condition. (dpa/NAN)
