The Duke of Edinburgh underwent a successful heart procedure at St Bartholomew’s Hospital on Monday. Buckingham Palace said,
The Duke of Edinburgh yesterday underwent a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. His Royal Highness will remain in hospital for treatment, rest and recuperation for a number of days.
Later in the week, it was announced that Prince has been transferred back to King Edward VII hospital in London where he was admitted on February 15 for the treatment of an infection.
The Palace said that The Duke is expected to remain at the Hospital for a number of days. This is Philip’s longest hospital stay going on for 21 days. He was visited by Prince Charles once at the hospital.
Today, Queen Elizabeth II marked the Commonwealth Day 2021 with her annual Commonwealth Day message. In her message, Her Majesty talked about the importance of “friendship” and the “spirit of unity” during “testing times”. The Queen hails the frontline Workers who have been working hard since the beginning of the pandemic and paid tribute to the way in which communities across the family of nations have come together in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
In the pictures released today from Windsor Castle, Her Majesty was wearing her Sapphire Chrysanthemum brooch that she also wore in the official pictures from her honeymoon with Prince Philip. It was such a sweet gesture that while The Queen is going on with her Royal duties she is still missing her husband.
I wish The Iron Duke a speedy recovery who will be making a century in the June this year .
