Prince Philip returned to Windsor Castle on Tuesday after a month in the hospital, where he was treated for an infection and had a heart procedure.
Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, Philip, 99, was admitted to the private King Edward VII’s Hospital in London on Feb. 16 , where he was treated for an infection.
He was then transferred to St. Bartholomew’s Hospital’s specialized cardiac care unit before returning to King Edward VII’s.
Photographers stationed outside the private hospital’s entrance captured his exit in the back of a black car. Philip’s release was later confirmed by Buckingham Palace in a statement.
“His Royal Highness wishes to express his gratitude to all the medical staff at King Edward VII’s Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital, as well as everyone who has sent him well wishes,” the palace said in a statement.
COVID-19 is not believed to be the cause of Philip’s illness. Both Philip and Elizabeth received coronavirus vaccines in January and chose to make their experiences public in order to encourage others to do so as well.
