Duke of Edinburgh 'well' despite eye colouring

Buckingham Palace has played down fears about the Duke of Edinburgh's health after he was pictured with purplish skin round his eye in Canada.

It is understood that Prince Philip, 91, did not fall and simply woke up with the bruising a few days ago.

The duke earlier presented a new ceremonial flag to 3rd Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment, in Toronto. He is the regiment's colonel-in-chief.
