The couple, who celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary last November, have been spending lockdown at Windsor Castle with a small household staff.
A palace source previously said that the duke, who turns 100 in June, had walked into the hospital in Marylebone unaided.
Prince Edward said his father was "a lot better", telling Sky News: "He s looking forward to getting out, which is the most positive thing, so we keep our fingers crossed."
He said the family had received "brilliant and lovely messages" since Prince Philip went into hospital, adding: "We really appreciate that and so does he."
Prince Charles, 72, spent about 30 minutes at the hospital visiting his father on Saturday afternoon.
A Clarence House spokesman said he returned to his Highgrove residence after the visit.
Prince Philip has received treatment for various health conditions over the years, including a blocked coronary artery in 2011, a bladder infection in 2012 and exploratory surgery on his abdomen in June 2013 .
