Prince Philip surprises the Queen by going to Balmoral after hip replacement

Prince Philip made a surprise appearance at Balmoral where he joined Queen Elizabeth, as well as other members of the Royal Family on their trip to church.

The 97-year-old was spotted on Sunday, August 19, 2018, riding in the royal Bentley alongside his wife on their way to Crathie Kirk church, in what was his first public outing with the Queen since June.

According to the Mirror, the royal couple met with Zara and Mike Tindall, as well as Camilla and Prince Edward, just to name a few of the Royals present during the service.

Up to this point, it is believed that Prince Phillip has been enjoying several pleasurable activities, such as fishing in the River Dee during his summer stay at Balmoral.

Besides fishing, it has been reported that the 97-year-old has also engaged in deer hunting sessions, as well as picnics and barbecues held at the property.

Due to his age, Philip no longer carries public engagements, having retired last year at the age of 96. In total, he is estimated to have participated in more 22,000 public appearances.

This number makes the Prince one of the busiest Royals alive. Nowadays, most public engagements are mostly done by Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.


Queen Elizabeth, the head of the Royal Family, continues to honor her duties and partaking in several events. Recently, in July, she welcomed the U.S. President, Donald Trump.

The American leader's visit caused quite a lot of controversy, not only because he kept the Queen waiting for 15 minutes, but also because he was seen turning his back to the monarch and walking in front of her.

Despite the reports that he was late, Trump rejected the facts and claimed that Queen Elizabeth was the one who was late for the meeting and that they got along so well that their 15-minute conversation stretched for over an hour.
