Prince Philip, husband of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, to retire from Royal duties at 95

Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, who turns 96 next month and is set to celebrate his 70th wedding anniversary with the Queen of England in November, will retire from royal duties after August 2017, Buckingham Palace have announced.

Throughout Wednesday night, fear erupted over the health and fitness of Prince Philip after Queen Elizabeth II called all Buckingham Palace officials for an emergency meeting. The Prince's retirement decision was made together with the queen, who revealed that he has her full support and that she will continue to carry out all official engagements.


Below is the statement:

'His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh has decided that he will no longer carry out public engagements from the autumn of this year. In taking this decision, The Duke has the full support of The Queen.

'Prince Philip will attend previously scheduled engagements between now and August, both individually and accompanying The Queen.

'Thereafter, The Duke will not be accepting new invitations for visits and engagements, although he may still choose to attend certain public events from time to time.

'The Duke of Edinburgh is Patron, President or a member of over 780 organizations, with which he will continue to be associated, although he will no longer play an active role by attending engagements.'

'Her Majesty will continue to carry out a full program of official engagements with the support of members of the Royal Family.'
