War hero, constant companion and consort to Good Queen Bess, founder of his great eponymous awards scheme and all round good bloke, the Duke of Edinburgh is finally retiring from public life at the grand old age of 96 (he is retiring after his birthday).
If anyone deserves a good retirement it is he, but there is only one downside. I will miss all of his off the cuff remarks and jokes that so upset the snowflakes of this world. I hope some other public figure picks up his baton!! 🙂
