Sandringham is a 3 hour+ drive west from Bucklebury. If Prince Philip is to join The Queen in balmoral and she reportedly left yesterday, then he won't have seen his first great grandson.

I suspect that the Cambridge trio will all travel up to Balmoral at some point to allow all the family (including Philip) to meet the newest member of the family.

News channels reported on the day baby George came out of hospital that he was at Sandringham not Windsor. The Queen was going to pick him up on the way to Balmoral for summer.

Ahhh, I see. I was sure I had read that he was staying at Windsor Castle but thanks for the information.

Bucklebury is in the wrong direction from London. Sandringham is north and Bucklebury is west.

That is a long time to recover from exploratory surgery. I hope he is well enough to travel to Balmoral soon. I'm sure he and the Queen miss each other. It will be good to see him again.

It would be in a younger man but at 92 2 months is about normal for any major surgery and even exploratory abdominal surgery is major surgery.

According to Peter Hunt's twitter, there is another engagement for Prince Philip on 12th August, presenting medals in Edinburgh.

Which would fit with him going to Balmoral in mid-August as he would be on the way up - with maybe a one night stop in Edinburgh on the way through.

The first engagement listed on the Official Monarchy Website for him though is on the 30th September, but that isn't always accurate as I have frequently found that it only lists about 50% of the actual engagements done in advance.

It would also put to rest the nay-sayers who have him at death's door because:

a. he hasn't been seen for so long (ignoring the fact that we were told he would convalesce to 2 months back on the 17th June - and we haven't reached that point yet
b. they haven't taken George to see him because he is so far gone he wouldn't know what was happening/worries that a very young child in the house could be enough to finish him off
c. the Queen has gone to Balmoral without him because she couldn't stand to be with him when he goes

etc etc etc

These are just a few of the scenarios I have read on various fora across the internet as people simply choose to ignore what BP announced on the 17th June.

The press are now reporting that he will be returning to public duties soon.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...m-surgery.html

BBC News - Prince Philip set to resume public duties after op

It is good news that he will be returning to work and that he will soon see his new great-grandson.

Great news indeed! I'm glad His Highness had a good recovery, and that we'll see him about and about soon.

Why - we were told 'two months convalescence' and he will have had two months - so why not expect him back in the time frame we were given when he left hospital on the 17th June?

I wonder why Philip doesn't recuperate at Buckingham Palace so he and Elizabeth could be together. Any why wouldn't she wait a few days before leaving on vacation so they could travel together. I wouldn't want to be separated from my husband if either one of us were ill.
