He may still accompany the Queen on her engagements or state events, but as of today, the longest serving consort is putting his feet up. Your Royal Highness, thank you for your service to your Queen and to your country.

May your retirement be long and restful, full of sunny days catching up on your hobbies and gentle evenings with your feet toward the fire. Job well done.

He is probably not retiring from running the Royal Estates and is probably having a lot to do with the upcoming major refurbishment of Buckingham Palace. A remarkable man to whom we owe a great deal!

He has set the standard for a female sovereign's consort. Although it has been said over the years that he has foot-in-mouth disease, I don't think so. He has always loyally supported his wife in her role, and has never had a tantrum about his rank. Bravo to His Royal Highness, and yess, put your feet up and enjoy life. Not too many people are in such good shape at 96.
