Prince Philip is set to bounce back from his Diamond Jubilee illness by chairing an event at Buckingham Palace for Army top brass.

The Duke of Edinburgh has not been spotted in public since being discharged from a London hospital, last Saturday.

He developed a bladder infection following a rain-soaked River Thames Pageant in honour of the Queen’s 60 years on the throne, two almost weeks ago.

Tomorrow, he is set to join the Queen for the traditional Trooping the Colour ceremony,

The couple will ride in a carriage procession to the annual event, held in Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall, which marks the Queen’s official birthday.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman refused to comment on the Duke’s health but said: “The fact he’s attending engagements is an indication he is back to himself and able to carry out engagements.”
