Issue information

When Prince Philip retired from public life in 2017 at the age of 96, it was reported that he had appeared at more than 22,000 official events and delivered some 5,500 speeches over the course of his career. He made ten visits to Aotearoa New Zealand with HRH Queen Elizabeth II and one solo tour in 1956. In the same year he co-founded the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, a programme designed to instil in young people “a sense of responsibility to themselves and their communities.”

Notably, Prince Philip’s love and support of the Queen has strengthened and shaped the monarchy into the institution it is today.
