Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, was back by Queen Elizabeth's side for a day of pomp and ceremony in London Saturday, a week after leaving the hospital.
The 91-year-old joined the Queen, Prince William and his wife Kate, and other members of the royal family for the traditional balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace.
Earlier, Philip donned the red tunic and heavy bearskin hat of his rank of Colonel in the Grenadier Guards at the annual birthday parade for the Queen – also known as Trooping the Colour.
Philip has been recovering at home since leaving the hospital, where he was treated for a bladder infection. But on Saturday, he was seen standing ramrod straight as 1,600 soldiers paraded in front of the Queen, 86. He and the Queen (in a bright yellow coat and dress outfit by her in-house designer Angela Kelly) were transported from the palace to the parade grounds in a glass coach for the military spectacle.

The Duchess of Cambridge navigated another royal first Tuesday when she joined Queen Elizabeth – and 8,000 other people – at a garden tea party at Buckingham Palace.
Under sunny skies and an uncharacteristically warm 77 degrees, she wore a familiar outfit: a hat by Jane Corbett and the same $2,000 pink Emilia Wickstead coat dress first seen 11 days ago at the Windsor Castle lunch the Queen gave for visiting royals.
Led by the Queen and Prince Philip, the royal party, including Kate, stood to attention for the national anthem before stepping down onto the garden's lawns.

Is the Queen of England taking a page from Duchess Catherine? The royal matriarch has been recycling a plum coat for years now, wearing it most recently on Monday for an official outing in Windsor (right) as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour.
The coat's first appearance came on Christmas Day 2006 (left), when the Queen stepped out for church with her family. She also wore the piece – designed by her head dresser, Angela Kelly – to the Giant Rugby Ball in London in November of 2008 (center).
On Monday, the Queen paired the coat and matching hat – also recycled from her wardrobe – with black gloves, a dainty black leather purse and a diamond brooch.
