After almost 70-years of public service, the Duke of Edinburgh has performed his last official solo duty before stepping into a well earned retirement at the grand age of 96.

He was hailed as a "wonderful figurehead" as he met with Royal Marines during his last official royal engagement yesterday.

He says he's learning what it's like "to be on your last legs".

And he's been a welcome visitor to the Channel islands many times over the years.
