The Duke of Edinburgh left hospital yesterday - 11 days after having surgery.
The 92-year-old shook hands with staff yesterday at the London Clinic where he'd been staying and waved to journalists as he got into a car to head for Windsor Castle.
Buckingham Palace say Prince Philip will take two months off royal duties to recover from the surgery.
The Palace had said the operation was pre-arranged and not an emergency. Over 1,000 people sent get well cards to the Duke whilst he was in hospital.
It is understood he will not accompany the Queen when she attends Ascot Racecourse this week.
Royal Ascot kicked off today.
