Prince Philip has been married to Queen Elizabeth II for more than 70 years and is the longest royal husband in history, but since he was 90, he has been questioning and talking about his health for years. These worries hit feverish fever when he retired from his royal duties in 2017, and rumored that he was doing so for health reasons. But is that why he decided not to fulfill more royal commitments?
Here again, if the Duke's retirement in Edinburgh had something to do with his health and why he did not spend so much time with the queen these days.
Retirement of Prince Philip
Since she was the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip had 22,219 solo commitments, giving 5,496 speeches and writing 14 books. He was once one of the most difficult members of the royal family but decided to officially retire on August 2, 2017.
"The Duke of Edinburgh will no longer perform his own program of public engagement," the palace statement said. "The Captain General's parade will bring the individual program to His Royal Highness, although he may choose to attend certain events with the Queen from time to time.
His retirement had nothing to do with his health, but everything related to the fact that he was 96 years old and it is time to stop after so many years of work. Even Her Majesty has changed in her royal affairs and no longer travels abroad for any kind of commitment.
How strong is Prince Philippe?
Prince Philip is actually pretty good for his age. His only recent health-related questions came in June 2017 and April 2018.
Last June, he was taken by Windsor to London and admitted to hospital after being diagnosed with an infection. Then, in April 2018, he was admitted to King Edward VII's hospital for a hip replacement surgery. He was released the next day and six weeks later he could attend grandchildren's wedding, Prince Harry, to Megan Markel.
Before that, the Sun noted that the Duke had a "stent in his heart a few years ago, but he loves fishing, and sometimes hours in the Dee River, for his age he is like a violin.
Where he spends most of his time without his wife
After living so much of his life in the public eye, Prince Philip is seen much less now because he is no longer staying in Buckingham Palace. The Prince retired to Norfolk, where he resided at a residence in the royal estate of Sandringham called Wood Farm. Of course, Queen Elizabeth is not yet retired, so she still spends most of her time at the London Palace.
The day-old beast reported that the prince had moved from Buckingham Palace and spent only a few "nights" there since he officially retired.
Source told Express that while Philip is in "Tree Farming" very much now, he still makes time to see his wife.
"He is very happy with a tree farm and he and the queen are still visible at some point during the week or on weekends," the source said. "They can be seen by Her Majesty's chart, but she works around it to see it as much as possible."
