Prince Philip has recovered from his hip operation just in time to go the Royal wedding.

The 96-year-old Duke of Edinburgh has ditched his crutches two weeks after his surgery, ahead of Harry and Meghan’s big day on May 19.

To ensure he can stand without the aid of a stick on the big day, the royal has been walking up and down stairs to build up his strength.

A source told The Sun: ‘The Duke is already walking unaided.

‘He has amazing willpower. 

‘When he sets his mind to something he gets on and does it.’

‘He has been walking up and down stairs several times in succession.

‘He has also been charging across rooms at full speed. He even had to be told to slow down.’

The Duke of Edinburgh has left hospital on April 13, following a successful hip replacement operation the previous week.

He was taken to the private King Edward VII hospital in central London, for surgery to replace his joint with a prosthetic implant.

He was admitted on Tuesday, April 3 and underwent the planned procedure the following day. 

The duke, who retired from royal duties in August 2017, continued his recovery in Windsor.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding is likely to be the first public appearance by the Queen’s consort.
