“It is good news, very good news, about Philip — I’m told he’s doing very well, actually," Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers said on the "Pod Save The Queen" podcast. 

“Back home and causing trouble, I am sure," his co-host Ann Gripper added. 

"No doubt," Myers replied.

According to the Daily Mail, Prince Charles told the Mayor of Athens, Kostas Bakoyannis, during his tour of Greece that "it really is wonderful that [his father, Philip] is better."

Philip — who turns 100 in June — was first admitted to the hospital in mid-February.

In March, Philip was "transferred from King Edward VII’s Hospital to St Bartholomew’s Hospital where doctors will continue to treat him for an infection, as well as undertake testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition,” the Palace said in a statement. 

“The Duke remains comfortable and is responding to treatment but is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week,” they added.

As Philip was under the weather, the Queen, 94, had been dealing with the fallout of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview — and trying to keep things quiet from her husband

"He obviously knows about Harry and Meghan’s interview, but the queen, Charles and [Prince] William are trying to avoid overwhelming him with their problems," the insider told Us Weekly, adding that the brood "are keeping their conversations with him about the aftermath light."

As a result, the Queen has been in "constant crisis meetings" ever since the interview aired on March 7.
