Prince Philip has been in hospital for 13 days, with the latest update being that he is has been transferred to St Bartholomew's Hospital to continue treatment for an infection.

Here is a timeline of the Duke of Edinburgh’s stay in hospital:

“The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest."

The Prince of Wales arrived at the hospital at around 3.20pm. It was understood the prince travelled from his home in Highgrove, Gloucestershire, to the hospital in central London, a journey of around 100 miles.
