The article features His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip who celebrated his 90th birthday. He was born in 1921 on the island of Corfu, Greece and renounced his Greek royal title in 1946 when he became a naturalised British subject after serving in the Royal Navy. He has fulfilled over 19,500 official engagements and although he is a Privy Counsellor and a member of the House of Lords, he has no constitutional role and has not spoken at Parliament because of his proximity to the Queen. The Duke founded the Commonwealth Study Conference which is held every six years and aims to develop industrial and business leaders of high quality. He was also Patron or President of about 800 organisations including the Institute of Management Services.
