Princess Anne visits her father Prince Philip in hospital

Prince Philip has left hospital 10 days after a successful operation on his hip.

The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to hospital last Wednesday and there was a sigh of relief this morning when the 96-year-old royal was discharged with a clean bill of health.

The Prince was spotted leaving King Edward VII's hospital where he waved to crowds from his auto.

The Duke will recover at Windsor and may be using a walking stick or crutches at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.
