LONDON (AP) – Britain’s Prince Philip returned to Windsor Castle on Tuesday after a month of hospital treatment for infection and heart surgery.

Philip, 99, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, was admitted to King Edward VII’s private hospital in London on February 16, where he was being treated for an infection.

He was later transferred to a specialized cardiac ward at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital before returning to King Edward VII.

Photographers standing in front of the door of the private hospital recorded his departure in a black car. Buckingham Palace later issued a statement confirming Philip’s release.

“His Royal Highness thanks all the medical staff who have looked after him at both King Edward VII’s Hospital and St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, as well as everyone who sent their good wishes,” the palace said in a statement.

Philip’s illness is not believed to be related to COVID-19. Both Philip and Elizabeth received coronavirus vaccines in January and decided to publicize the matter to encourage others to take the vaccine as well.

Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, retired in 2017 and rarely makes public appearances. Before going to hospital, he had isolated with the Queen at Windsor Castle, west of London.
