Despite now being in his late 90s, Philip is still often spotted carriage riding while in Windsor.

The royal’s appearance today comes after he and the Queen celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary on Tuesday. 

The 92-year-old marked the special day by visiting the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors at its London headquarters.

He was not present at the service at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday, missing the ceremony for the first time in 20 years.

However, he was spotted leaving Buckingham Palace following Prince Charles’ 70th birthday celebrations earlier this month.

Since his retirement, Philip has had more time to enjoy carriage-driving, which has been one of his favourite past-times since the 1970s. 

He raced carriages near Norfolk before going on to represent Britain at several world and European championships.
