As planned, the 96-year-old Duke of Edinburgh underwent a hip surgery operation on Wednesday, and according to a new statement released by royal communications, everything went successfully. "He is comfortable and in good spirits".
The prince, who is 96, has largely retired from public life, but still makes royal appearances with the queen on occasion.

Philip has been in generally good health for his age, but he was briefly hospitalised over Christmas in 2011 for angioplasty treatment of a blockage in his coronary arteries. He accompanied the queen on visits overseas as late as 2015. In 2016, he represented the royal family at 200 engagements.
The imperial couple were also married on November 20, 1947 when they were Princess Elizabeth and Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten, at Westminster Abbey.
"He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years" the queen said in a golden wedding anniversary speech in 1997.
