But Philip, 91, continues to receive treatment for a flare-up of a bladder infection at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

The Duke has so far not received any visits from his relatives after doctors on Friday advised him to rest.

He was admitted to the NHS hospital on Wednesday, during his and the Queen's annual summer break at Balmoral.

Officials said at the time that he would be in the infirmary for a few days and it remains unclear when he will be discharged.

He is said to have been in regular contact with members of his family by telephone.
