Prince Philip: King’s death follows period of health problems |  Prince Philip

On leaving the hospital for the last time, the duke exited through a side entrance in a wheelchair and he was helped into the rear passenger seat of a waiting car. He then made fewer public appearances and spent most of his time on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk. He turned 99 during the pandemic and moved to be with the Queen at Windsor Castle for most of lockdown. His son, Prince Charles, who visited his father during his last spell in hospital, told reporters it was “very good news” and he was “thrilled” that his father had returned home. He also confirmed that he had spoken to the duke.

The reason for his initial admission was never revealed but palace officials said it was not related to coronavirus. He and the Queen had their first Covid vaccine dose on 9 January. “His Royal Highness wishes to thank all the medical staff who looked after him … and everyone who has sent their good wishes,” it added.

Philip’s health had been slowly deteriorating for some time. He joked he could no longer stand up when he stepped down from royal engagements in May 2017. His final official public appearance was made later that year during a Royal Marines parade on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace. After being discharged on 16 March, the duke returned to Windsor Castle and was said to be in “good spirits”. In a statement, Buckingham Palace said he was discharged “following treatment for an infection and a successful procedure for a pre-existing condition”.

Source Prince Phillip had been treated for a number of conditions in his lifetime, including a bladder infection in 2012. He had exploratory surgery on his abdomen in June 2013. The duke was in King Edward VII’s hospital for four nights before Christmas in 2019 for observation and treatment in relation to a “pre-existing condition”. He had hip surgery in April 2018.
