After nearly two weeks in the hospital, the Duke of Edinburgh returns home.
The Queen’s 92-year-old husband was admitted for exploratory abdominal surgery on June 6. Though Philip spent his 92nd birthday (June 10) in the hospital, he was not left wanting for visitors; the Queen and other members of his family came to visit over the course of his 11-day stay.
The Duke has always had marvelous health, but despite his desire to carry on as usual, in recent years he has had to take extra care due simply to age. Buckingham Palace released a statement today stating that while the Duke is in “good condition and good spirits”, he will be taking “a period of convalescence of approximately two months”.
