The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, will retire from royal duties in August.

Prince Philip is the Queen’s husband.

He would attend previously scheduled engagements between now and August but would not accept new invitations.

The prince – who turns 96 next month – carried out 110 days of engagements last year.

He was the patron, the president or a member of more than 780 organisations and would continue to be associated with them, but “will no longer play an active role by attending engagements”, Buckingham Palace said.

The palace said the 91-year-old queen would continue to carry out her full programme of engagements.

The pair celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary in November.

  1. It is good he can retire now, I think he needs a good rest after many years of serving england.He’s a great prince,and a great guy ? Still a pity to see him go from the royalty

  2. There are positives and negatives about him retiring; positive: it’s good that he doesn’t have to work anymore, because he is already 95. Negative: people will miss him from serving after all those years…

  3. He is 95 nearly 96 so I would retire if I were him. My Nana is 96 so I know how that feels to have an old relative. He is old ( no effence ) so I think its fair for him to retire.

  4. He’s done well to his nation. retiring at 95, Wow! If I were him, I’d retire at like 83! I do wish them a great early anniversary.
