PRINCE Philip has shown he’s still in fine form following news of his retirement, joking about his ability to stand up.
Within hours of the announcement the Duke, 95, will step back from public engagements in August, he was with the Queen, 91, at a service for members of the Order of Merit at St James’s Palace.
“I’m sorry to hear you’re standing down,” one man said to the Duke in an exchange captured on camera. He quickly replied: “I can’t stand up much!”
