The Duke of Edinburgh’s homecoming is said to have been welcomed as a “great comfort” by Her Majesty. Philip was “in good spirits” following his discharge from King Edward VII’s Hospital in Marylebone, a senior palace source told Mirror.co.uk.

He was pushed in a wheelchair to a vehicle waiting outside the hospital on Monday morning.

The Duke’s hospital stay was his longest ever after being admitted under a “precautionary measure”.

In 2013, Prince Philip spent 11 days in hospital after an operation on his abdomen.

Despite it being his longest ever hospital stay, the Duke was discharged on Tuesday after a successful procedure on a pre-existing condition.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “The Duke of Edinburgh has today been discharged from King Edward VII’s hospital and has returned to Windsor Castle, following treatment for an infection and a successful procedure for a pre-existing condition.

“His Royal Highness wishes to thank all the medical staff who looked after him at both King Edward VII’s hospital and St Bartholomew’s hospital, and everyone who has sent their good wishes.”

During the Duke’s hospital stay, the Royal Family had to deal with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s landmark interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In a two-hour long CBS special broadcast in the UK by ITV, the couple publicly alleged an unnamed member of the Royal Family had voiced concerns over Archie’s skin colour before he was born.

Ms Winfrey later confirmed it was not the Queen or Prince Philip.

The interview also saw Meghan, who is now pregnant with the couple’s second child, confess she felt suicidal during her years as a working royal.

According to The Daily Mail, palace staff felt “angry and let down” by the Sussexes’ claims.

Many had supported the prince and his wife during an “extremely difficult and trying three years”.
