Prince Philip spent 28 days in hospital – the longest in his life – after being admitted to King Edward VII as a precaution in February.

At the beginning of March, doctors at St Bartholomew’s performed heart surgery on the Queen’s husband of 73 years.

Back home and causing trouble, I am sure.

When he left the hospital, his eldest son Prince Charles, 72, was reportedly “thrilled”.

The heir to the throne revealed his joy during a visit with his wife, Camilla, to a COVID-19 vaccination centre in London.

Asked about his father, Charles replied: “I am thrilled about it.”

The Queen, meanwhile, sent flowers to the hospital staff who cared for her husband.
