According to a post by Daily Mail, Prince Philip has retired from his royal duties and he has made his retirement base, reading, painting watercolours, writing letters and having friends to stay.
How hard it must have been for the Queen to tear herself away. With the workmen finally gone, there was the shiny new kitchen — the first for 30 years — in the house where she and Prince Philip feel, and behave, like normal people.
They’d spent a few days together last week at Wood Farm, the spacious but modestly furnished cottage on the Sandringham estate that for years has been their bolthole from Palace formality. But the Queen — at 91 — had to return to her duties in London.
The Duke of Edinburgh, 96, went with her on the helicopter flight. But then he flew on to Windsor Castle where he is staying until after the weekend.
Then it’s back to Wood Farm. Now retired from his official life, it was he who organised the new kitchen, one of the subtle changes their lives have undergone lately.
He loves it there and has made it his retirement base, reading, painting watercolours, writing letters and having friends to stay
