英国王室于 2017年 5月4日发布声明宣布, 女王 伊丽莎白二世的丈夫菲利普亲王将于今年秋季“退休”,不再履行王室公务。菲利普亲王也拥有爱丁堡公爵的头衔,下个月将迎来他 96岁的生日。白金汉宫说此决定是由菲利普亲王自己做出的,同时也得到了英女王的全力支持。请听 BBC 的报道。

The Duke has been a great support to the Queen, by her side on royal engagements for more than five decades. But the 95 year old says it’s time for him to step away from public life.

He is patron, president or a member of more than 780 organisations. He will continue to support them, but the Palace says he won’t play an active role. He may still though choose to attend certain public events from time to time.

The Palace also says the Queen will continue to carry out a full programme of official engagements.
