Prince Philip turns 90 and vows to 'slow down'

The Duke of Edinburgh, who has turned 90, has told the BBC he is "winding down" and reducing his workload as a senior member of the royal family.

In an interview with the BBC's Fiona Bruce, the Queen's husband said: "I reckon I've done my bit."

His birthday on Friday will be spent hosting a Buckingham Palace event for the Royal National Institute for Deaf People, which is marking its centenary.
