Prince Philip was first admitted to a London hospital on February 17 - he has remained there since.
Now, the Palace has shared a further update on Philip's condition, explaining in a statement that he is suffering from an infection, as well as a pre-existing heart condition.
As he has continued treatment, the Duke has now been moved from King Edward VII's Hospital to St Bartholomew's Hospital in London.
In the statement, the Palace explained: "The Duke of Edinburgh was today transferred from King Edward VII's Hospital to St Bartholomew's Hospital where doctors will continue to treat him for an infection, as well as undertake testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition."
The statement continued: "The Duke remains comfortable and is responding to treatment but is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week."

The 99-year-old royal was originally admitted as a precaution after he felt unwell for several days, as per the Palace at the time.
It seems his pre-existing condition has continued to cause complications - his new hospital is known for its thorough treatment for cardiovascular issues.

While it seems a little alarming to hear of the Prince's lengthy stay in hospital, it seems it's still business as usual back in Windsor Castle, where the Queen has continued to reside throughout the majority of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, she even took part in a special unveiling ceremony of her own statue here in Australia.
Appearing in high spirits in a soft pink ensemble, the Queen joined in a video call with the Governor of South Australia, His Excellency the Hon. Hieu Van Le and the Premier Steven Marshall as they unveiled the statue, which sits outside Government House in Adelaide, South Australia.
It's encouraging to see the Queen go about her work as per usual - so here's hoping Philip's hospital stay doesn't last much longer and he's reunited with his wife soon enough.
