The Duke of Edinburgh continues to stay away from public life while he recovers from illness.
Prince Philip left King Edward VII hospital in Papworth, south London, last Saturday after five nights there.
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace today said his convalescence continues.
He fell ill with a bladder infection following the Thames Pageant for the Queen’s diamond Jubilee, on June 3.
The Prince was on board the Spirit Of Chartwell royal barge in a flotilla of 1,000 boats along the Thames in wet and cold conditions.
It meant he was absent from a celebration for members of the public at Sandringham Palace today, and will also miss an event in midlands tomorrow.
