Britain's Prince Philip, the 99-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth, has been transferred back to a private hospital after successfully undergoing a procedure to treat a heart condition, Buckingham Palace said on Friday.

Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh who has been hospitalized for more than two weeks, was moved to a London hospital with a specialist cardiac center on Monday for treatment for a pre-existing heart issue. The Palace said he had now returned to the private King Edward VII's Hospital where he was first admitted for treatment for an unspecified but non-COVID-related infection.

"The Duke is expected to remain in the hospital for continuing treatment for several days," the palace said in a statement. Since being admitted to hospital on Feb. 16, the duke has been publicly visited only by his son and heir Prince Charles.

The queen, 94, has remained at Windsor Castle west of London, where the couple has been staying during the coronavirus pandemic and has continued to carry out her official duties by video.
