William and Harry visited with their grandfather for 40 minutes before leaving the hospital, wearing almost identical navy blue suits with button-up shirts. Their cousins, Beatrice and Eugenie, also visited earlier in the day, a source tells Us.

Outside the hospital, Charles told Sky News that Philip was doing "much better."

Indeed, a Palace rep told Us on June 10 that the Duke of Edinburgh "is progressing according to plans at this early stage" and "is comfortable and in good spirits." They added that Phillip "will remain in hospital for two weeks and will take a period of convalescence for two months."
