Duke of Edinburgh discharged from hospitalApril 6th, 2008 - 8:41 pm ICT by admin
London, Apr.6 (ANI): The Duke of Edinburgh and Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Phillip, was discharged from London’s King Edward VII Hospital on Sunday after being treated for a chest infection.
Prince Philip, 86, was discharged after spending three nights in the hospital, the BBC reported. He was admitted on Thursday after developing a heavy cold which caused him to cancel a number of engagements.
Royal officials had stressed his stay was a precaution, and not an emergency.
They said he has returned to Windsor Castle to continue his recuperation.
The Duke’s engagements for Monday have been cancelled, with future diary dates to be decided on a day-to-day basis.
His last official public role was during French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s state visit to Britain on March 26.(ANI)
