The Duke of Edinburgh is to stand down from royal duties for good from August, Buckingham Palace has announced.
Prince Philip's last visit to the West Country was in October when he travelled to Poundbury alongside the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
As always he was greeted by visitors of all ages on the streets of Poundbury and the royal party unveiled a statue of the Queen Mother.
