The Queen’s husband, The Duke of Edinburgh, has left hospital in Scotland after receiving six days of treatment for a bladder infection.
Prince Philip, 91, smiled as he shook the hands of staff members at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary before being driven away in a chauffeured Range Rover.
Doctors at the weekend advised the Duke to get rest and not accept any visitors.
The Queen traditionally spends three months of the summer in Scotland. This year, she arrived at her Balmoral home for some rest and relaxation after a hectic few months of engagements to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee and then the Olympics.
Two months ago, Prince Philip was taken to hospital with a bladder infection, overshadowing four days of celebrations for the queen's 60th year on the British throne.
In December last year, Philip had an operation to clear a blocked heart artery and spent Christmas in hospital.
