While Prince Philip has been in a fairly healthy condition throughout his life, he had been reportedly treated for a blocked coronary artery in 2011, and a bladder infection in 2012.

Philip has been in generally good health for his age, but he was briefly hospitalised over Christmas in 2011 for angioplasty treatment of a blockage in his coronary arteries. In 2016, he represented the royal family at 200 engagements.
