Prince Philip, 95-year-old husband of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, is to step down from public life, Buckingham Palace has announced.

The prince, who has been at the Queen's side for her 65-year reign and is also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, will stop accepting public engagements from September, the palace said.

The Queen, who is 91 and has gradually scaled back her public appearances in recent years, will continue to carry out her duties supported by other members of the royal family.
