The Duke of Edinburgh marked the bicentenary of the Royal Yacht Squadron with a Fleet Review of more than 180 ships gathered at Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Prince Philip, who is Admiral of the Squadron and wore a cap related to this rank, presided over the day’s events aboard a Royal Navy patrol boat.
Sailing is a popular sport among European royals; accomplished royal sailors King Harald of Norway, Prince Albert of Monaco, King Constantine of Greece, Prince Pavlos of Greece, Viscount Linley and Prince Henrik of Denmark were in attendance for the naval celebration, all sporting natty nautical caps.
Prince Philip was further accompanied by the Princess Royal, Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and Prince Michael of Kent. While Princess Anne sported a headscarf, the royal men (except for the Vice Admiral) wore hats related to their roles with the squadron.
