After being discharged from the London Clinic yesterday after 11 days in hospital, undergoing exploratory surgery early on in his stay, the Duke of Edinburgh will now spend his recuperation time at Windsor Castle, the usual weekend home of Her Majesty The Queen.
The Duke, who turned 92 last Monday, is expected to take two months away from Royal engagements to recover from the surgery that took place a few weeks ago.
CNN reports that Buckingham Palace said this recuperation will take place at Windsor Castle.
Prince Philip, who is currently the oldest living member of the Royal Family, was discharged from hospital yesterday. He walked out of the London Clinic unaided and looked well, walking to a waiting Range Rover which then drove him to Windsor Castle where he began resting. He did not attend the lunch for the knights of the Garter which was held at the same time he was there.

In a few days time, The Queen will present new colours to Nijmegen Company Grenadier Guards and inspect The Queen’s Company, of which she is personally Company Commander. She will do this without her husband the Duke of Edinburgh who is Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.
