Prince Philip Reportedly Leaves Hospital a Month after Initial Admission
Prince Philip has reportedly been discharged from the hospital a month after being admitted and two weeks after his successful heart surgery. The Duke of Edinburgh was initially admitted after an infection.
It is excellent news for the British royal family as patriarch Prince Philip has reportedly been released from the hospital after his month-long stay. The fantastic information was first shared by ITV News editor Jamie Summers.
Summers took to Twitter to share a video of the Duke of Edinburgh leaving King Edward VII's Hospital in his entourage. According to Daily Mail, Prince Philip exited the hospital at about 10:30 AM.
The duke was seen in a wheelchair before he was assisted into the vehicle and driven away. The 99-year-old royal is believed to be heading to Windsor castle to reunite with his wife of 73 years, Queen Elizabeth II.
However, it hasn't been confirmed by Buckingham Palace, where the prince would have his residence. Fans may recall that Prince Philip was first taken to the hospital on February 16 after feeling unwell.

According to initial reports, the senior royal was down with an infection, with palace sources stating that his illness had nothing to do with COVID-19. The duke, who turns 100 in June, was then transferred to St. Bartholomew's hospital in London.
The Duke of Cambridge revealed that the nurses were keeping an eye on his grandfather.
There, Prince Philp underwent successful heart surgery for a pre-existing condition on March 3 and was returned to King Edward VII's in Marylebone to recover, spending a total of 28 nights there ― the longest he had ever stayed in a hospital.
During his admission, the duke was visited by his son Prince Charles, and the palace informed royal fans that he was doing well and in good spirits. His grandson Prince William also gave an update on his condition.
