The Duke of Edinburgh, 99, has left hospital after four weeks as he was recovering from a medical procedure.
He was taken by car to King Edward VII hospital on 16 February after feeling unwell, and was able to walk into the hospital unaided.
The Duke then underwent a procedure for a per-existing heart condition at St Barts on 3 March after being transferred by ambulance, then later returned back to King Edwards VII.
Prince Phillip has been the longest serving consort and has been married to the Queen for 73-years.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said he had returned “following treatment for an infection and a successful procedure for a pre-existing condition.”
Adding, “His Royal Highness wishes to thank all the medical staff who looked after him at both King Edward VII’s Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital, and everyone who has sent their good wishes.”
