Prince Philip's final official engagement announced

The Duke of Edinburgh's final official royal engagement before retirement has been announced.

Prince Philip will attend a parade at Buckingham Palace on 2 August to mark the finale of the Royal Marines 1664 Global Challenge, a palace spokeswoman said.

Buckingham Palace announced in May that the Duke would give up his official public duties from the autumn.

A palace spokeswoman said the parade in August would "bring His Royal Highness's individual programme to a conclusion, although he may choose to attend certain events, alongside the Queen, from time to time".
