Philip heads home after 4-week hospital stay

An infection and then “a successful procedure for a pre-existing condition” (aka heart surgery) saw the Duke of Edinburgh laid up for 28 days, but he’s on the mend and has returned to Windsor Castle. There were concerns for the 99yo as he endured his longest ever hospital stay. Now, he can get on with planning his 100th birthday celebrations on 10 June. Not a lot has happened while he was out of circulation – just his grandson Prince Harry and wife Meghan levelling racism claims against a member of the family as the Palace accused the Duchess of bullying… As for the LA branch of the Royal family, US morning show host/Oprah’s bestie Gayle King says she’d spoken to the Sussexes and was told discussions between Harry, William and Charles, were “not productive,” but they were glad talks had started.
