Prince Philip, the world's longest serving royal consort, has performed his last solo public duty, retiring at the age of 96.
The Duke of Edinburgh leaves a legacy of tens of thousands of public engagements and thousands of international trips.
Doffing his hat for a final time, Prince Philip bowed out of public duty to the tune of 'For He's A Jolly Good Fellow'.
Fittingly, he closed the doors on his career with a parade for Royal Marines. His ceremonial ties to them date back to when he himself was a young naval commander, and his wife a princess.
He's been married to the Queen for nearly seven decades and is the only person on the planet who can hurry her majesty, by snapping: "Yak yak yak, come on, get a move on".
"The Queen is more reserved and shy, whereas Prince Philip is very open and has got this lovely sense of humour which I think the public enjoy - so he's a great sort of icebreaker," says Charles Anson, former secretary to the Queen.
Prince Philip has always been quite blasÃ© about his role, once saying: "Any bloody fool can lay a wreath at the thingamy."
He's the man who brought you gems like, "You look like a suicide bomber" to a female officer, and, "Do you work in a strip club?" to a young cadet.
"Do you still throw spears to Australian aboriginals?" he once joked about cannibalism in Papua New Guinea, and called a 13-year-old too fat to be an astronaut.
The list goes on and on, earning the Duke of Edinburgh yet another title: The Prince of Gaffes.
