Prince Philip Retires: BMSF Chairman on Hong Kong’s Phoenix News Network
LON菲利普親王退休: On Wednesday, 2 August 2017, British Monarchist Society & Foundation Chairman, Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills, joined Hong Kong’s Phoenix news network’s Yingbo Zhang to discuss the retirement of Philip, Duke of Edinburgh after nearly 70 years by The Queen’s side. On Wednesday The Duke of Edinburgh carried out his last official engagement from which Thomas was commenting live from Buckingham Palace. Prince Philip has now carried out around 22,220 solo engagements, gone on 637 foreign trips and given 5,493 speeches since 1947. As a former Royal Navy officer Prince Philip’s last public solo event, after more than 65 years championing his own causes and charities, fittingly featured men from the Royal Marines, an integral part of the Navy. Wearing a bowler hat and rain coat the Duke did not let a heavy downpour affect his final day which was staged in Buckingham Palace’s forecourt. The event marked the end of the 1664 Global Challenge, which recognises 1664, the year the Royal Marines were founded, and has seen marines push themselves to the limit with a series of physical exploits in aid of the Royal Marines Charity.
