97-year-old Prince Philip looked relaxed after undergoing a hip surgery in April. He was seen in good spirits chatting with his aide.


As reported by Daily Mail, the Duke of Edinburgh was spotted outdoors in the castle ground. He looked relaxed riding his horse carriage. Philip wore a green jacket and beige chinos and wore a beige flat cap for this outing.

Philip is known for his beloved hoppy of carriage riding whenever he is staying at Windsor Castle. He gave up polo in the '70s and driving his carriage has been his favorite pastime since.

Philip retired from his royal duties last year. Although his hip surgery took place in April, he managed to make a public appearance on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on May 19.


Since he retired, Philip reduced his number of public appearances. He did not attend 'Trooping the Colour' that was held in honor of the Queen's birthday last week. His absence had raised concerns about Philip's health.

Philip attended the Cartier Queen's Cup Final at Windsor Great Park on Sunday. He was accompanied by Queen Elizabeth at the polo tournament. The couple watched the match together and Elizabeth presented the awards to the players.


Philip had revealed his passion was carriage driving in his book, 30 Years On and Off the Box Seat.

"I am getting old. My reactions are getting slower and my memory is unreliable. But, I have not lost the sheer pleasure of driving a team through the British countryside."

He added that he was fortunate to live longer than most people and did not intend to give up while he had a team of willing ponies and dedicated grooms, as reported by Hello Magazine.

Philip's hip surgery took place at the King Edward VII Hospital in London. He returned to Windsor to recuperate from the operation and his recent outing suggested that the recovery was successful.
