Buckingham Palace officials say Britain's Prince Philip will leave the hospital after treatment for a blocked coronary artery.

Officials say Queen Elizabeth II's 90-year-old husband will leave Tuesday morning after spending four nights in the hospital recovering from a successful coronary stent procedure.

Philip was staying at Papworth, a specialist heart hospital in Cambridge, where he was taken Friday after complaining of chest pains. He will join the queen and other members of the Royal Family at Sandringham, one of the queen's estates.

It was the most serious health scare suffered by Philip, who is known to be active and robust. He has continued to appear at many engagements, most recently taking a 10-day tour of Australia with the queen.
