Queen Elizabeth paid a 50-minute call on her ailing husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, on Wednesday, at London's King Edward VII Hospital.
Arriving shortly after 5 p.m., the Queen, 86, smiled broadly for photographers as she climbed into the royal Bentley following her visit, reports the Telegraph.
On Monday, Philip, who will turn 91 on Sunday, was rushed to the hospital from Windsor and diagnosed with a bladder infection.
Despite his condition – and his having missed the final two days of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee festivities – Philip was said to be in "good spirits" and responding to antibiotics, having "improved considerably" since his admittance, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

There will be a newly slimmed-down Sophie Rhys-Jones tying the knot with Prince Edward this Saturday. Britain's lively tabloid the Sun reports that the bride-to-be dropped more than 20 pounds in anticipation of the big event. "Sophie has told friends she 'feels fantastic' after dropping a dress size by cutting out fatty foods and taking exercise," says the paper. She went from size 12 to 10 -- and can sometimes slip into a size 8 (these are American sizes). Adds the Sun: "She now tips the scales at under nine stone (about 125 pounds), and Edward is said to be 'delighted.'"

When the wedding photographer said "smile," Prince William didn't. So Prince Edward ordered his nephew's unsmiling image digitally removed from the official photograph of family members attending his wedding Saturday to Sophie Rhys-Jones and swapped the sullen expression with an image of the young prince looking a bit more cheerful. "Prince Edward said he didn't think Prince William looked absolutely his best, so digitally we were able to put in another picture of Prince William from one of the other shots where he is smiling and laughing," photographer Geoffrey Shakerley told ITN on Monday.

Britain's favorite newlywed, Prince Edward, is being accused of cashing in on his royal name. In November he is planning to charge tourists to hear him lecture on the restoration of Windsor Castle following its almost-total destruction in a 1992 fire. Up to 500 people a night (for four nights) are expected to fill Windsor's Theater Royal to hear Edward, whose talks will include slides and video footage. Price of the lecture package is $465 and includes travel to Windsor to and from London, hotel accommodation and a visit to the castle where Edward was married last month to public relations executive Sophie Rhys-Jones.
