    Prince Philip’s Health Improves

    Britain's 90-year-old Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, waves as he leaves the hospital in central London on June 9, 2012 after five days of treatment for a bladder infection.  Prince Philip was taken to hospital on June 4, 2012  in the midst of the queen's diamond jubilee celebrations, less than six months after he needed treatment for a blocked coronary artery.

    According to an official statement from Buckingham Palace on Thursday, Queen Elizabeth II's husband is "responding well to treatment" for a bladder infection that put him in the hospital Wednesday. The Duke of Edinburgh spent five days in treatment for a similar infection two and a half months ago, during the Diamond Jubilee festivities. He is likely to remain hospitalized for "a few more days," according to an official, but may be healthy enough to make an appearance at the Paralympics opening ceremony on Aug. 29.
