Prince Philip may have undergone a "minor procedure" on his right hand on Tuesday, according to Buckingham Palace, but you almost wouldn't know it seeing how the 92-year-old royal took part in not one, but two official engagements the very next day.

While he was seen wearing a bandage, the Duke of Edinburgh nevertheless appeared to be in good spirits while visiting a health clinic in London, and later attending a garden party on Wednesday.

The procedure was performed inside Buckingham Palace. However, no specific details were given.

In 2013, Philip was hospitalized for nearly two weeks after undergoing an exploratory procedure following, according to his spokesperson, "abdominal investigations."

He also underwent an emergency surgery to repair a blocked coronary artery at Christmas time in 2011.

He was also briefly hospitalized during wife Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee celebration in June 2012 due to a bladder infection.
