  • Britain's Prince Philip to retire this week

The event, which saw 1,500 royal marines and army commandos run a total of 1,664 miles over 100 days, is something close to Prince Philip, who has been associated with the Royal Marines for 64 years.

But although the parade spelled the end of his working life with three "hip hip hoorays", a Royal butler has revealed to us he will still be attending an entire list of events.

Green added: "The Duke of Edinburgh is all about challenges, he's all about charity work and helping people and having somebody like the Duke as head of the Royal Marines, it just helps the Corps with our own challenges".

The Prince's retirement comes after he was released from a London area hospital in June after being treated for an infection from a pre-existing condition.

Buckingham Palace has stressed that although the Duke of Edinburgh's official diary will come to an end, he may still attend certain events alongside the Queen, whose public schedule will continue as normal.

After that, he will still appear at Queen Elizabeth II's side - from time to time - as the 91-year-old monarch soldiers on.

Since marrying the young Princess Elizabeth in 1947, the Duke has delivered thousands of speeches and visited 143 different countries.

The Senate overwhelmingly passed a sweeping bipartisan sanctions bill targeting Russia , Iran , and North Korea Thursday, 98-2. He said if the USA were to impose new sanctions on Russian Federation it would be an act of "exceptional cynicism".

Prince Philip attends an event in July. As their first-born, Prince Charles is next in line for the throne. Prince Philip was unexpectedly hospitalized during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, according to USA Today.

As someone who has taken part in many official ceremonies and photo ops, Prince Philip has developed a reputation for being gaffe-prone at best, and insulting at worst.

"He will be missed on the public stage", said William Cook, 89, whose grandson was one of the Royal Marines being honoured by the prince.

The couple are set to mark their 70th or platinum wedding anniversary in November this year.

They have four children and eight grandchildren.

He also asked a Scottish driving instructor: "How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to pass the test?" and enquired, "Still throwing spears?" of an Indiginous Australian.
