(LONDON) — Prince Philip has rejoined the royal family after being hospitalized for a recurrence of the bladder infection he suffered earlier this summer.
The Duke of Edinburgh was released from the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Aberdeen, Scotland, on Monday after five days of treatment.
Buckingham Palace said the prince was admitted to the hospital last Wednesday as “as a precautionary measure.” The hospitalization stemmed from a bladder infection the 91-year-old suffered in June during Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
