Camilla Parker-Bowles says Prince Philip's condition is "slightly improving" but his hospital treatment "hurts at moments".

The Duchess of Cornwall asked the country to "keep fingers crossed" for the Duke of Edinburgh while speaking at a vaccination centre in Croydon, south London on Wednesday.

The 99-year-old was moved to a different hospital for further treatment this week, more than two weeks after he was hospitalised on February 16 as a "precaution" after feeling unwell.

It means he has spent 15 nights in hospital – his longest ever stay.

His admission was not related to coronavirus.

He is currently being treated at St Bartholomew's Hospital in central London, where he was taken on Monday.

Buckingham Palace confirmed he was being treated for an infection but is "comfortable" and responding to treatment.

In a statement, the Palace said he was also receiving "testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition".

He is expected to stay in hospital until "at least the end of next week", it added.

His son, Prince Charles, visited him on February 20 while he was still at King Edward VII's Hospital in central London.

Royal commentators have claimed it is unlikely the Queen will visit Prince Philip.
