Royal Family News: Prince Philip Recovering In Hospital While CBS Moves Ahead With Oprah Interview
British Royal family news reveals Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh is recovering from his successful heart surgery according to new reports which is good news for a lot of people on both sides of the pond.
While at one point it appeared as though no one really knew what was going on with Prince Philip, despite the fact that he has been in the hospital for well over two weeks now, the timing of his hospitalization coincided with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to spill all their royal tea in a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey. With the Duke of Edinburgh now in recovery mode, it looks like CBS will move full speed ahead with the broadcast of the interview. Here’s what you need to know.
Prince Philip Recovering From Heart Surgery While CBS Moves Full Speed Ahead With Oprah Interview
While initial reports indicated that Prince Philip was hospitalized because of an infection that was thankfully not Covid-19 related, it turned out that Queen Elizabeth’s husband also needed surgery for his preexisting heart condition. On Thursday, Buckingham Palace released a statement to the press that said everything so far is looking good.
“The Duke of Edinburgh yesterday underwent a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital,” the palace said, using Philip’s formal title.
“His Royal Highness will remain in hospital for treatment, rest and recuperation for a number of days,” the statement said.

And while Prince Philip is safe and sound and resting, the rest of the royal family perhaps isn’t. Even though there were some critics who suggested that CBS should postpone Harry and Meghan’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, it looks like it’s going to happen on Sunday night, no matter what happens.
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any additional comments about Prince Philip’s health, nor does it look like his wife Queen Elizabeth will be visiting him at the hospital anytime soon. The Duke of Edinburgh is the longest-serving royal consort in British history, Philip married then-Princess Elizabeth in 1947. As many royal fans already know, the royal couple have four children, eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
