Prince Philip joined the Queen on Tuesday for a rare outing.

The pair stepped out together at the Order of Merit service, just two years after the Duke of Edinburgh retired from public duties.

The Merit service was held at Windsor Castle, just a short walk from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s home of Frogmore Cottage.
