There was a general chorus of “Hasn’t he done well?” when the Duke of Edinburgh announced that he planned to step back from public duties (though with exceptions of his choosing).
The consensus was that the Queen’s rock and right-hand man, at the age of 95, deserves a break from unveiling plaques and looking absorbed when people he doesn’t know tell him things in great detail.
Alan Titchmarsh, who’s almost a confidant of the Duke having interviewed him several times down the years, shares his insight into the longest-serving consort in British history. Titchmarsh talks to the Duke’s close friends and wonders what his withdrawal from the public stage means for the monarchy’s future.
With the recent news that the Duke of Edinburgh is stepping down from public duties, Alan Titchmarsh looks back on the life of the longest-serving consort in British history. Alan hears about Prince Philip from those closest to him, celebrates 70 years of the his royal duty from naval officer to husband of the Queen, and looks ahead to what this significant moment means for the monarchy.
