The Duke of Kent has been discharged from hospital after being admitted with a hip injury obtained during a stay at Balmoral estate.
The Queen’s cousin, 79, injured himself at the Royal Deeside estate over the weekend.
He was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with a suspected dislocated hip.
A spokesperson for the Palace said: “We can confirm that the Duke of Kent was admitted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary on Monday with a suspected hip injury obtained during a private stay at Balmoral.”
Buckingham Palace confirmed that the Duke was released from hospital this afternoon (Tuesday April 7).
Both the Duke and Duchess of Kent continue to undertake a large number of royal engagements, as the couple have close associations with many charities, organisations and professional bodies.
The Duke graduated from Sandhurst in 1955 as a second lieutenant in the Royal Scots Greys before serving with his regiment at home and overseas in a military career that spanned 21 years.
