This week was the fifth anniversary of Prince Philip’s last solo engagement before he retired from public service. Royal fans have taken to Twitter to pay respects to the Duke of Edinburgh, who died in April last year.
Prince Philip participated in his last royal engagement on August 2, 2017, at Buckingham Palace in which he attended a Royal Marine parade.
This last event had personal importance to the Duke of Edinburgh, who was a former Royal Navy officer.
The Prince served in the Navy during World War 2 and made history as one of Britain’s youngest first lieutenants to participate in the war.
