Prince Philip is discharged from hospital after hip surgery

The Duke of Edinburgh has left King Edward VII's hospital today, following his hip replacement operation last week. A day after his April 3 procedure, Buckingham Palace announced that everything went well and said that Prince Philip was in good spirits.

The statement added that the Prince "would like to convey his appreciation" for the well-wishes he has received.

Queen Elizabeth II has not been photographed visiting her husband at the hospital.

How long will Prince Philip's recovery be? The Duke of Edinburgh has been released from the hospital after undergoing a hip replacement.

Prince Philip, 96, was photographed leaving the facility. But he has since appeared several times at engagements alongside the 91-year-old queen. He is progressing satisfactorily at this early stage. As royal expert Katie Nicholl told ET previous year, the timing of Prince Harry's wedding, "a whirlwind by royal standards", is partially due to the desire to have his grandfather in attendance.

Prince Philip was forced to miss Easter religious services due to the problem with his hip and has had various health complaints in recent years.

He was named in the order of service, but a palace spokesperson said: "The order of service was printed some weeks ago when it was hoped the Duke would be able to take part".
