    The 91-year-old Duke of Edinburgh returned to daily life as a royal on Saturday, taking in a military flyover in his first public appearance since he went to the hospital with a bladder infection weeks ago. Prince Philip, the queen’s husband, had weathered earlier health scares, but this one caused him to miss some of the festivities for Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee. The event Saturday marked the queen’s birthday. At the time of Philip’s hospitalization, performer Elton John joked that the prince was only feigning illness to get out of having to attend a planned concert for the jubilee celebrations, saying, “He hates pop music—anything to get out of a pop concert.”
