Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II is retiring from royal duties this autumn, Buckingham Palace has announced.
The decision was made by Prince Philip himself and is supported by the Queen, a palace spokesman said. The Duke, who turns 96 next month, will attend previously scheduled engagements between now and August but will not accept new invitations. Magnum photographers have photographed the Duke from the early days of the Queen's reign.
