Prince Philip Cancels A Rare Public Engagement Due To Health Issues. What Is His Status?
March 23, 2018
Last year, Prince Philip retired from public life. Since then, he has made only a few appearances, accompanying his wife, Elizabeth II. Retirement also means relinquishing some of his responsibilities. In particular, the Duke of Edinburgh is no longer Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, the position he has had for 42 years!
On March 22, the Prince was expected to hand the role to his second son, Prince Andrew. But it seems the 96-year-old was too ill to attend an event.
