Sounds like the DoE is undergoing treatment that is at least minimally invasive.

I wonder what it could be?

People only have to quarantine in hotels if they're arriving from countries considered high risk, which is mainly countries in South America and southern Africa due to concerns about the variants there. The US isn't on the list, so Harry could quarantine at Frogmore or anywhere else, but no-one's supposed to be travelling either into the country or within the country unless it's essential ... you could reasonably class visiting a sick elderly grandfather as essential, but opinions may vary.

However, this particular hospital doesn't allow visitors unless the patient's a child/an adult who is incapacitated and can't make their own decisions (or is giving birth and wants their partner or someone else there for support), so he wouldn't be able to visit anyway.

Camilla said they were keeping their fingers crossed, which could mean anything or nothing but is a long way from saying that they're sure he'll be fine.

The family has more information about Philip’s health than any of us and that includes Harry. If it seems Philip is on his death bed, I’m sure arrangements and contingency plans have been made by the Sussexes.

So Harry probably does have a plan to fly over if needed.

No, it doesn't. Although even a slight improvement after a major illness in a man his age is something.

It sounds like the family is hopeful but realistic.

Well it definitely doesn't sound very encouraging but it's obviously better than going further down hill.

As for Harry, I'm sure he's being kept informed and maybe even been in contact with his grandfather over Zoom etc but there are a lot more complications than there would be in normal times, not just what's safe and practical for him but for the family to be seen following the rules.

Unfortunately there are thousands of people in the same boat at the moment.

It's just been announced that he's undergone a "successful procedure" for a pre-existing heart condition, and will remain in hospital for "a number of days".

What a great news on "successful procedure". Wishing Philip recovers well and smoothly!

Here is Chris Ship's update:
Chris Ship @chrisshipitv
UPDATE on The Duke of Edinburgh. Yesterday he had a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St Bartholomews Hospital.
Prince Philip will remain in hospital for treatment, rest and recuperation for a number of days

Chris Ship @chrisshipitv
Replying to @chrisshipitv
Its possible Prince Philip had a stent fitted which was one of the predictions from experts when the Duke was moved to the cardiac specialist @BartsHospital on Monday. He had a stent fitted in 2011 following a blocked coronary artery.

The Duke of Edinburgh has undergone a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition, Buckingham Palace has said.

The palace said the duke would remain in hospital for treatment, rest and recuperation for a number of days.

Excellent news of the success of this procedure with Prince Philip. He's certainly a physically tough old man. We will probably be seeing him back at Windsor by the middle of next week.

Poor old boy. but its a lot to put a 99 year old man through. I wonder if that's why Charles visited him a week or so ago becuase they wanted to do this procedure and mabye Phil was feeling ill and more depressed....

According to Camilla he's been in some pain as well. Hardly surprising. It is certainly a lot for a nearly 100 year old body to be put through.

It's amazing that a procedure done every single day by the thousands (if, in fact, it was a stent) was successfully done on a 99 year old body. Philip is made of strong stuff and hopefully this will clear up the problem and he'll be back home again soon. Seems to me that he's in better shape physically than I am and he's got 30 years on me.

You just can't keep a good man down.

Whereas I wish him all the best and a speedy recovery, it also makes me a bit sad.
If he hadnt been who he is, he certainly had not been put through a surgery anymore at this age. Have experienced this a lot, even in my own family, that doctors have negotiated surgerys because the patient had been older than 95.

Maybe this issue cropped up a week ago, and that was why Charles had to go see him.

He must be very strong to get such surgery at his age.
I wish him a quick recovery.

If, and it's a big "if", Prince Philip underwent an Angioplasty to insert stent(s), it is only major because of his age. The most dangerous thing for a man if his age is anesthesia and the is not required for that procedure.

I will admit it can be uncomfortable, perhaps even a little painful but it is not open heart surgery which would be both. To me it seems the easier option would be what he had given the projected discharge date. For younger and/or healthier patients such a procedure is Day Surgery but Prince Philip has been in hospital for some time perhaps with another UTI or perhaps another bout of pneumonia or pleurisy both of which cause chest pain and which could have masked the deeper problem which necessitated the move to a different hospital.

They would have tested for heart problems if he had chest pains.. I suspect that this came up when Charles went to see him. Perhaps hearing that he had heart issues again, upset him a lot....
