Prince Philip has retired from his public duties since 2017 due to health issues. Last year, he underwent a hip replacement surgery around Easter time. He was still driving his car just last year. Unfortunately, he got in a car accident and has since given up his license.

One public appearance he did not miss was Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018. He also attended his granddaughter Princess Eugenie’s wedding in October 2018. In conclusion, last month, Queen Elizabeth and Philip celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary.


We hope that Prince Philip is doing okay and that he makes it home to be with his family at Christmas! Best wishes to the royal family.
