Prince Philip Responds To Retirement Well-Wisher With A Top-Notch Dad Joke

And when Prince Philip visited Bolton back in 2009, the Queen's husband was full of jokes. "Thereafter, The Duke will not accepting new invitations for visits and engagements, although he may still choose to attend certain public events from time to time".

"Her Majesty will continue to carry out a full program of official engagements with the support of members of the royal family", a statement from Buckingham Palace reads.

The gathering sends a message to team Kensington Palace (that's William, Kate and Harry) and team Clarence House (that's Charles and Camilla), that it's time to all work together, making sure it's business as usual for the royal firm.

He has been hospitalized several times since then with other ailments.

Inspite of being at the forefront of the royal family for nearly 70 years and also patron, president or a member of more than 780 organisations, he has no clear-cut constitutional role and has admitted struggling to carve out a role for himself as the queen's consort.

Prime Minister Theresa May issued a statement thanking the prince and wishing him well.

His decision to retire from public life comes after a momentous six-year period for the Royal Family, from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in 2011, the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations last year and the Queen becoming Britain's longest-reigning monarch, passing her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria's record, in September 2015.

"I'm sorry to hear you're standing down", said 88-year-old mathematician Michael Atiyah said, using the British expression for retirement.

"Prince Philip dead at 95, how did the Duke of Edinburgh die, etc etc", the headline from the Sun blared.

News that all royal household staff had been called to Buckingham Palace at short notice prompted a frenzy of speculation about the nature of the announcement.

On Thursday, Prince Philip and the Queen are due at a service for members of the Order of Merit at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace before hosting a lunch for those attending. The incorrect report was quickly dropped.

In Australia, where the queen is recognized as head of state, officials praised Philip's perseverance.

"It should not really come as a surprise that, at the age of 95, the duke has decided that now is the right time for him to retire from official duties".

Danica Kirka and Kevin Scott in London and Kristen Gelineau in Sydney contributed.
