Royal Family: Prince Philip discharged from hospital after hip replacement

Britain's Prince Philip waves as he leaves the King Edward VII Hospital after recovering from a planned surgery last Wednesday in London Friday

The Duke of Edinburgh leaving the King Edward VII Hospital in London after recovering from a planned surgery last Wednesday to replace his joint with a prosthetic implant.

Buckingham Palace announced in a statement that the Duke of Edinburgh, as he is formally known, would continue his recovery at Windsor, where he lives with his wife, Queen Elizabeth II.

Prince Philip is out of the hospital Friday and on the mend following his hip replacement surgery on April 4.

His daughter, Princess Anne - the Princess Royal, was the only royal visitor to the hospital, who had described him "on good form" after she visited her father yesterday.

After over a week in King Edward VII's hospital, Prince Philip was discharged today, waving to the crowds as he was driven away in a Land Rover.

Ecuador's President Confirms Death of Kidnapped Journalists
The government Thursday received photos Thursday from the Colombian TV station RCN suggesting the three had been killed. He said the time for restraint was over and that he won't allow Ecuador to become a haven for transnational drug gangs.

The Queen's comment about Philip came during a brief walkabout after a visit to the King George VI Day Centre in Windsor to mark the 60th anniversary of her opening the building.

It is understood the 96-year-old had been having trouble with his hip for about a month before the operation.

He is expected to need a rehabilitation period and to use crutches for a number of weeks.

His surgery comes ahead of a busy time for the royal family, with Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, due to give birth to her third child some time this month, and the wedding of his grandson, Prince Harry, with Meghan Markle on May 19.

The duke retired from official duties past year but has been seen in recent months driving his auto and attending some events with his family.
