QUEEN ELIZABETH II has welcomed home her husband after his five-night stay in a central London hospital.

The 90-year-old appeared on the steps of King Edward VII hospital this morning, smiling and waving.

It was thought that he would miss his birthday celebrations tomorrow but now looks set to be with his wife and family for the occasion.

The Duke of Edinburgh was hospitalised on Monday with a bladder infection and missed many of the Diamond Jubilee events at Buckingham Palace.

According to BBC News, the Prince’s next official engagement is scheduled for Tuesday when the Queen hosts a garden party at the Sandringham Estate, the tail-end of Jubilee celebrations.
