The 91-year-old British royal accompanied his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, to an 18th century parish church in Scotland on Sunday. Crathie Kirk church is near the Balmoral estate where they have been staying.
The prince, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, spent five nights at Scotland's Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after a recurrence of a bladder infection. It was Philip's third hospital stay in the last eight months. He was discharged on Monday.
