Duke to be reunited with the Queen after hospital release

Prince Philip's release from hospital came after five nights away from Balmoral following the recurrence of a bladder infection that he first encountered during the Diamond Jubilee.

The Duke was taken ill during his traditional annual summer break with the Queen at the royal family's Scottish estate.

During his time at the NHS hospital, he was not visited by Her Majesty or other family members after being advised by doctors to rest, but remained in regular contact with relatives by telephone.
