The Duke of Edinburgh retired from public life last August, although he has appeared alongside the Queen at several events.

Officially, Queen Elizabeth has supported Prince Philip's decision to retire.

In June 2017, Prince Philip spent two nights in hospital as a "precautionary measure" for the treatment of an undisclosed infection.

The queen missed a traditional Christmas church service in late 2016 for the first time in decades due to a heavy cold and was hospitalized in March 2013 with symptoms of gastroenteritis.

The 96-year-old royal, who is married to Queen Elizabeth II, skipped Easter services this past weekend in order to rest up prior to his operation.
