Happy 96th Birthday on June 10 to His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. It has recently been announced that he will retire from royal duties and visits in the autumn. Very much a man's man, a keen sportsman, and known for his tactless gaffes at times, His Royal Highness has been at Her Majesty the Queen's side for almost seventy years.
I love this photo, taken at Broadlands in Hampshire, to mark their Diamond Wedding Anniversary in 2007.
The photo is a recreation of the one taken in the same location while on their honeymoon.
