As readers know, however, the surgery is just the latest ailment to affect the aging ruler.

Philip was hospitalized with a severe infection last June. Just one month earlier, the Palace announced Queen Elizabeth's longtime husband would be retiring from his royal duties after serving over 70 years in public service.

Though Prince Philip continues to battle various ailments at the time, Buckingham Palace confirmed he is resting comfortably, for now.
