Britain's Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, today left hospital after a hip replacement surgery.
Queen Elizabeth II's husband had been admitted to hospital on April 3 to undergo a planned procedure the following day.
"His Royal Highness would like to convey his appreciation for the messages of good wishes he has received," the palace said in a statement.
A month later he was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital as "a precautionary measure" following an infection arising from a pre-existing condition.
His final solo engagement was in August last year, when he reviewed a parade of Royal Marines outside Buckingham Palace in his capacity as Captain General of the Corps. But he has since appeared several times at engagements alongside the 91-year-old queen.
His surgery comes ahead of a busy time for the royal family, with Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, due to give birth to her third child some time this month, and the wedding of his grandson, Prince Harry, with Meghan Markle on May 19.
