Prince Philip Retires - 2017 | Our Royal Update # 46
Published: 1 year ago
Britain's Prince Philip completed his last public engagement on August 2, 2017 after 65 years of service.
The Prince, who is also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, met a group of Royal Marines at Buckingham Palace as part of his final official appearance.
It was the 96-year-old's 22,219th public engagement.
He'll still appear at Queen Elizabeth II's side - from time to time and will maintain his connections with over 780 organizations, of which he is a patron, president or member.
The queen supported the decision, which was greeted with an international press flurry when it was announced in May.
