The outspoken 90-year-old prince smiled and waved yesterday as he was driven away in a dark Range Rover vehicle from Papworth Hospital near Cambridge, eastern England.

Buckingham Palace said Prince Philip would return to the royal Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

“His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was discharged from Papworth Hospital this morning. He is returning to Sandringham by car,” the palace said in a statement, referring to Philip by his official title.

“On departure, Prince Philip thanked the staff at Papworth for the excellent care he has received during his stay.

“He is very much looking forward to rejoining his family.”

The health scare was the most serious yet for the longest serving royal consort in British history, who has remained active despite his age.
