Prince Philip leaves hospital after surgery

Reuters LONDON (Reuters) — Britain’s Prince Philip, 96, the husband of Queen Elizabeth, left hospital on Friday after a hip replacement operation, waving to media waiting outside the hospital as he was driven away.

Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was admitted last week to the King Edward VII Hospital in London which is regularly used by the royal family.

Former naval officer Philip retired from public life last August, quipping at the time that he was no longer able to “stand up much.”
