Prince Philip discharged from Hospital ahead of Christmas

The Duke of Edinburgh has returned to Sandringham in time for Christmas after four nights in hospital.

Prince Philip, 98, was taken to the King Edward VII’s Hospital in London on Friday on the advice of his doctor.

Buckingham Palace said the duke had returned to the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk on Tuesday and thanked people for “their good wishes”.

It comes after the revelation the Queen will use her Christmas Day message to acknowledge 2019 has been “bumpy”.

The monarch herself travelled to Sandringham on Friday.

The palace, meanwhile, said the duke’s hospital admission had been a “precautionary measure”.

Prince Philip retired from public life in August 2017 after decades supporting the Queen and attending events for his own charities and organisations.

His last public appearance was Lady Gabriella Windsor’s wedding in May.

The Prince of Wales said on Monday his father had been “looked after very well” by hospital staff.
