The Duke of Edinburgh conducted his final official public engagement this morning in the Forecourt of Buckingham Palace. As Captain General of the Royal Marines, he attended a parade to mark the finale of the 1664 Global Challenge, a widespread fundraising campaign taking place this year. Prince Philip stepped out in the rain for the parade in a classic bowler hat, bringing an end to a career of military and public service that extends 75 years.
Hats off to you, sir. Your retirement is well deserved.
