Prince Philip seen with Queen Elizabeth is saying farewell to public engagements retiring at 96

The 96-year-old met Royal Marines at a charity event at Buckingham Palace this afternoon, after which he will no longer accept invitations to attend public events, although the Palace has said he may decide to accompany the Queen at some of her official engagements.

The Duke of Edinburgh will meet Royal Marines at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday in his final official engagement before he retires from public duty.

He has a keen interest in scientific and technological research, was an early champion of the conservation movement, and his youth scheme the Duke of Edinburgh's Award has extended across the world.

Over the years Philip has attended many Royal Marines events and in 2014, to mark the Corps' 350th anniversary, the Duke wore his full ceremonial uniform as Captain General to the state opening of parliament. "I had to try to support the queen as best I could, without getting in the way".

"The Duke of Edinburgh, the longest-serving consort to a monarch in British history, has died at the age of XX, Buckingham Palace has announced".

New England Patriots LB Rob Ninkovich to announce retirement
The most emotional may have been when he looked right at Belichick and said, "Coach, I gave you everything I had". Ninkovich signed with the Patriots as a free agent in 2009 after playing with the Saints and Dolphins.

Protesters call for ending Jordan peace treaty with Israel
The ministry said the incident began when two Jordanian workmen arrived at the residential building to replace furniture. The Israeli Embassy has refused to release the guard to the Jordanians for questioning, saying he has immunity.

The queen has described Philip, her husband of nearly 70 years who is now the longest-serving consort in British history, as "my strength and stay".

It is not the first time a newspaper has prematurely announced the duke's death, with the Sun making a similar error in May when the duke announced his retirement from public engagements.

But he uses it to break the ice, and many view it as a welcome contrast to the queen's more formal reserve.

While someone would soon pay for the gaffe, the day goes down in history with Prince Philip relinquishing his duties after an unprecedented 22,219 solo engagements since 1952, serving as the patron, president and member of nearly 783 organisations.

He and the queen have scaled back public duties in recent years, handing responsibilities to the younger royals, including heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, and his eldest son Prince William.
