Queen Elizabeth II’s 99-year-old husband Prince Philip left a central London hospital on Tuesday, an AFP reporter witnessed, after four weeks of treatment, including a successful heart procedure.
Buckingham Palace was yet to confirm his discharge from the private King Edward VII’s Hospital, where he has been recovering from what the palace has described as a “successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition”.
Prince Philip has returned to Windsor Castle to be with the Queen and was pictured leaving King Edward VII Hospital in a BMW today.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said he had returned “following treatment for an infection and a successful procedure for a pre-existing condition”.
It added: “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.”
