This morning, the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh left the hospital of King Edward VII, where he was under doctors’ supervision for four weeks – he had never stayed in a medical facility for such a long time.
Prince Philip was hospitalized from Windsor Castle when he felt unwell. Buckingham Palace then immediately ruled out COVID-19. In early March, the husband of 94-year-old Elizabeth II was transported to a cardiology centre, where he underwent heart surgery due to a long-diagnosed illness.
Royal experts, who know the prince well, noted that he would definitely want to leave the hospital on foot. And so it happened: this morning, the police closed the entrance to the King Edward Hospital so that Philip could safely leave the building and get into the car waiting for him. It was confirmed at Buckingham Palace that the Duke was on his way to Windsor Castle, where he would be reunited with the Queen. Sources added that the prince is in good spirits.
Philip and Elizabeth have a lot to discuss. The most pressing question is a frank interview of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Oprah Winfrey, in which the couple, among other things, accused the royal family of racism. The couple said some of their British relatives were worried about how dark baby Arch’s skin would be. The dukes explained that neither the queen nor her husband made such tactless remarks.
