Prince Philip left hospital Tuesday after being treated for what Buckingham Palace called a "pre-existing condition."
The 98-year-old is expected to join the rest of Britain's royal family for Christmas at Sandringham House in eastern England. He was set to fly there by helicopter.
Live footage showed the prince leaving the hospital on foot and entering a vehicle unaided.
Philip had been in the private hospital since Friday. His admittance was said to have been a "precautionary measure."
Buckingham Palace would not go into details about his ailment or the nature of his treatment.
Philip's decision to retire from public duties in 2017 was not health-related, the palace said at the time.
On Monday, Prince Charles said his father was "all right."
"When you get to that age, things don't work so well," he said.
"The Professor and the Madman," an Irish drama film, is set for theatrical release in the Chinese mainland on Dec. 24.
It tells the story of Professor James Murray, who began work compiling words for the first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary in the 19th century and received over 10,000 entries from Dr. William Minor, a murderer with schizophrenia.
Directed by Farhad Safinia, the film stars Mel Gibson and Sean Penn.
Broadway musical "Come from Away," paying tribute to bonhomie and benevolence in humanity, is set for China tour from April to June 2020.
The musical is based on a heartwarming true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and a small town of Gander in Canada's Newfoundland that welcomed them.
After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in 2001, the international airport in Gander took in 38 airplanes which were diverted to Canada when the U.S. airspace was shut down.
Overnight, close to 7,000 hungry, tired and scared passengers flooded into this small burg with a population shy of 10,000. Along with them were cultural clashes and soaring nerves.
However, in merely five days, all uneasiness turned into trust and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
Ten years after the attacks, Canadian married writing team Irene Sankoff and David Hein visited Gander and extensively interviewed witnesses, creating the musical based on close to 16,000 stories.
The musical proved to be a hit and captured the Tony Award for best direction and earned several Laurence Olivier Awards.
"To people who are struggling with life, a tiny gesture of goodwill is enough to pull them back from the brink of an abyss," said Yu Xinyue, a manager with the Shenzhen-based ACO Musical, the China tour's producer.
Prince Harry's office has confirmed that he and his family will be spending "private time" in Canada over the Christmas holidays.
Harry, his wife Meghan and their 7-month-old son Archie will miss Queen Elizabeth II's traditional Christmas gathering at her Sandringham estate.
Palace officials Friday night confirmed Harry's family is in Canada but did not provide details.
Meghan lived in Canada for many years before she married Harry while she was filming the TV series "Suits."
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomed the family with a tweet.
"Prince Harry, Meghan, and Archie, we're all wishing you a quiet and blessed stay in Canada," he said. "You're among friends, and always welcome here."
The couple is taking a break from royal duties. Harry has said that he and his brother Prince William are going in different directions at the moment.
He has also complained about intrusive press coverage of his young family.
Plenty of force was with "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" on its first night in theaters, but it fell short of the two previous films in the trilogy.
"The Rise of Skywalker" brought in an estimated $40 million in North America in its Thursday night previews, the fifth biggest Thursday opening ever.
The first film, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," earned $57 million its Thursday night previews in 2015, at the time the biggest of all time. It was topped by the $60 million take of "Avengers: Endgame" earlier this year.
The second film in the trilogy, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," had a $45 million tally on its opening Thursday night in 2017.
"The Rise of Skywalker," with "The Force Awakens" director J.J. Abrams back at the helm after Rian Johnson directed "The Last Jedi," didn't appear to be affected by bad critic reviews. The film scored just 58% with critics on Rotten Tomatoes compared to 98% for "The Last Jedi," but its fan score is 85%.
The third film stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver and Carrie Fisher and is expected to bring in $200 million by the end of the weekend.
