Prince Philip released from the hospital
Posted June 9, 2012
Britain's Prince Philip got into the front passenger seat of a Land Rover as he has left the hospital and zoomed home to celebrate his 91st birthday.
The husband of Queen Elizabeth II thanked staff at London's King Edward VII Hospital Saturday after spending five days there for treatment for a bladder infection, reports AP.
When reporters shouted questions about whether he was feeling better, he waved and nodded.
"The Duke of Edinburgh continues to make a good recovery," a Buckingham Palace spokesman told BBC News. "He will continue his convalescence at home. He will spend the weekend privately."
So that sounds like there's no big party planned for Philip, who turns 91 on Sunday. His wife recently celebrated her Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years on the throne.
