Daily Telegraph wrongly announces Duke of Edinburgh's death

Britain's Prince Philip to retire this week

Wearing a bowler hat and raincoat to protect himself from heavy rain, he watched the marines parade on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace, the main royal residence in London.

In retirement, the Duke will likely enjoy more leisure time at Windsor Castle in Berkshire - he is an avid carriage driver and enjoys oil painting.

He has a keen interest in scientific and technological research, was an early champion of the conservation movement, and his youth scheme the Duke of Edinburgh's Award has extended across the world. "Every year, he and (his daughter) Princess Anne vie to which of them does more", one of his biographers, Gyles Brandreth, told BBC radio.

An incomplete article was published by the newspaper's website with the headline "HOLD HOLD HOLD Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh dies age XX".

Critics say Mr Erdogan is using the purge that followed the coup to stifle political dissent. Gulen is being tried in absentia, and denies any role in the coup attempt.

He was praised at the time for his public service with Prime Minister Theresa May leading the tributes, saying he had given the Queen "steadfast support", while Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the Duke's "clear sense of public duty" had inspired people for more than 60 years.

The palace said Philip may still choose to attend events alongside the queen. Philip has been by the queen's side throughout her 65 years on the throne and she has described him as "my strength and stay".

"How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them through the test?" he once asked a driving instructor in Scotland.

Since 1952, Prince Philip has carried out 22,219 solo public engagements, taken 637 solo overseas trips, made 5,493 speeches and authored 14 books. Their eldest son, Prince Charles, is the heir to the throne.

Patriots DE Rob Ninkovich will retire today
He recorded 8 sacks in three straight years from 2012-14, and played for the 2014 and 2016 Super Bowl teams. Despite his seemingly sudden retirement, there are no hard feelings between Ninkovich and the Patriots .

The Duke of Edinburgh began to scale back the number of engagements he participated in when he turned 90 years old in 2011.

But while the queen supports her husband's decision to retire, experts say her own sacred vow at her 1953 coronation to serve for life was unbreakable.

Meanwhile, other members of the Royal Family will step up in support of the monarch as head of state.
