A LIFETIME OF SERVICE
Besides fishing, it has been reported that the 97-year-old has also engaged in deer hunting sessions, as well as picnics and barbecues held at the property.
Due to his age, Philip no longer carries public engagements, having retired last year at the age of 96. In total, he is estimated to have participated in more 22,000 public appearances.
This number makes the Prince one of the busiest Royals alive. Nowadays, most public engagements are mostly done by Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
1/ On Friday, Donald Trump visited briefly with Queen Elizabeth II. Royal protocol dictates that one should never walk in front of the Queen, nor should you ever turn your back to her. The American President managed to do both - after he had kept her waiting for fifteen minutes. pic.twitter.com/v3wEZsX8Tl— Dr. Jack Brown (@DrGJackBrown) July 15, 2018
DONALD TRUMP CONTROVERSY
Queen Elizabeth, the head of the Royal Family, continues to honor her duties and partaking in several events. Recently, in July, she welcomed the U.S. President, Donald Trump.
The American leader's visit caused quite a lot of controversy, not only because he kept the Queen waiting for 15 minutes, but also because he was seen turning his back to the monarch and walking in front of her.
Despite the reports that he was late, Trump rejected the facts and claimed that Queen Elizabeth was the one who was late for the meeting and that they got along so well that their 15-minute conversation stretched for over an hour.
