The Duke of Edinburgh will turn over the reins to a new generation – and that’s good news for the travel industry as the photogenic and popular couple, and little Prince Harry, get out and about more.
Buckingham Palace this morning announced that 95-year-old Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, will give up his royal duties this fall after 70 years of service.
"This will mean a change in structure for the entire royal family," said an article in Harper's Bazaar. "It may well be that we see the Prince of Wales and other members of the family accompanying the Queen on more engagements now. We're likely to be seeing a lot more of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry."
The young Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will in any case be moving to London, where tourists doubtless will be keeping an eye out.
