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.
