Prince Philip has left King Edward VII’s Hospital after his longest ever stay.

Earlier, police had blocked vehicle access to the private hospital in central London, where the Duke of Edinburgh had been recovering from a heart procedure.

Four police officers had arrived on motorcycles to join a dozen officers at the entrance of the hospital.

Philip was first admitted to hospital on 16 February before moving to St Bartholomew’s Hospital two weeks later, where he underwent a procedure for a pre-existing heart condition.

He was moved back to King Edward VII’s Hospital days later.

The duke, who is the nation’s longest-serving consort and turns 100 in June, left the hospital in the back of a black BMW on Tuesday morning.
