Prince Philip, 98, was discharged from the hospital Tuesday following treatment for a “pre-existing condition”.

According to reports, the Duke of Edinburgh was able to join his family at wife Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham retreat for the Christmas holidays.

“His Royal Highness would like to thank everyone who sent their good wishes,” read a statement from Buckingham Palace.

Video released showed Philip waving to a nurse as he departed the hospital following the five-day stint at private King Edward VII hospital.

The palace said he was there as a “precautionary measure.”

“The Duke of Edinburgh (traveled) from Norfolk this morning to the King Edward VII Hospital in London for observation and treatment in relation to a pre-existing condition,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement Friday. “The admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’ Doctor.”

Philip has not been in public view much since retiring from royal duties two years ago.

In recent years, he’s battled heart disease and a bladder infection.

Prince Charles said Monday his father was doing well all-in-all but is dealing with issues related to getting older.

“When you get to that age, things don’t work so well,” he said.
