Grandpa taken out to dinner by the grandkids

Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II were treated to dinner at the The Waterside Inn, at Bray, Berkshire, a "eye-wateringly expensive," three Michelin-starred restaurant on the Thames. 

Their grandchildren picked up the check.   The dinner was the final event for Prince Philip on Sunday June 12, in honor of his 90th birthday.

In the morning,  a Service of Thanksgiving was held at St. George's Chapel, Windsor, which was followed by a "champagne reception," for 750 guests.  Afterward, a private lunch for members of the Royal family and members of Prince Philip's Mountbatten relatives," was held at Windsor Castle. 

At the Waterside Inn, the royal party, which included the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York,  Peter and Autumn Phillips and Zara Philips,  dined in an "elegant private dining room."    Prince Harry had a previous engagement -- a charity dinner at Ascot -- and was unable to join the party.
