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.
