One reporter asked the Prince of Wales if he had spoken to his father yet. Charles laughed and said that he had talked to Philip several times.

A source revealed to People that Philip has been in a good mood since returning to the palace and reuniting with Queen Elizabeth II. He was admitted into King Edward VII Hospital on February 16. 

At the time, the media was told his hospital stay was for observation and rest. However, it turned out it was for treatment for an infection. He was later transferred to St Bartholomew’s.

Insiders shared that she must have felt lonely during the ongoing allegations surrounding the royal family.

At the beginning of March, Prince Philip underwent heart surgery. Buckingham Palace did not release any details about his condition, only that the surgery was a success. 

After surgery, he was transferred back to King Edward. A spokesperson for the palace released a statement to People, in which Philip thanked the staff who had cared for him. Part of the statement read:

"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."

The Queen must have been happy to have him back as she calls her husband her strength. The Queen kept up with her appearances with charities via zoom while he was away.

However, insiders shared that she must have felt lonely during the ongoing allegations surrounding the royal family, including the bullying allegations against Meghan Markle and Markle and Prince Harry's explosive interview. 

During the interview, Prince Harry revealed that his relationship with his father, Prince Charles, was not good. Charles has not commented or discussed their relationship. 

However, when a reporter asked him on March 9 for his reaction about the tell-all interview with his son, daughter-in-law, and Oprah Winfrey, he stayed silent.
