Tomorrow is Prince Philip's last official engagement on retirement with the Royal Marines at Buckingham Palace. I wonder will the be any special coverage?

Thanks iceflower! I've already posted many articles/videos of it in the retirement thread, because I thought that was the best place to put it.

Sometimes if a person here at TRF that is knowledgeable in my eyes when it comes to things pertaining to the BRF, I'll click on their DF article link and in this one I wasn't disappointed. I got quite a chuckle out of Cruachan the pony that seems to steal the show at Balmoral. Cheeky little guy! Eating the Queen's posies and then making himself known to get the Queen's attention.

Priceless! :biggrin:

You just can't keep a good man down. Although officially retired, he still is the unwavering and steadfast companion to HM. He does actually enjoy these kind of things, I think, and keeping active and going about doing things and seeing things and enjoying life is what is keeping him as hale and hearty as he is.

This man writes the book on how to be a consort to a Queen. :biggrin:
