Britain's Prince Philip left the hospital this morning after a four-night stay for heart surgery that saw him miss Christmas, reports the Mirror. The 90-year-old Duke of Edinburgh waved to media gathered outside Papworth Hospital, and appeared to be in good spirits. Philip was headed by car for the queen's Sandringham estate, where he was "very much looking forward to rejoining his family," according to a Buckingham Palace statement.
