The Duke of Edinburgh will attend a parade of Royal Marines at Buckingham Palace, the last of 22,219 solo public engagements since she ascended to the throne in 1952. He has attended countless more events with the queen, now 91, but both have slowed their pace in recent years, handing over responsibilities to the younger royals. "Prince Philip is entitled to slow down a bit," the Daily Telegraph newspaper wrote in an editorial, adding: "This is a man who has always put his country first." The former World War II naval officer has carried out 637 overseas visits on his own in the past 65 years, given almost 5,500 speeches, and was patron, president or a member of more than 780 organisations. His final engagement on Wednesday will honour his military background, as he attends the end of a charity challenge in which Royal Marines ran 1,664 miles over 100 days to mark the founding of the commando force in 1664. Philip has been captain general of the corps since 1953, taking over from the queen’s father king George VI, who had died the year before. The queen has described Philip, her husband of almost 70 years who is now the longest-serving consort in British history, as "my strength and stay". But after announcing his plans to retire in May, he joked he was the "world’s most experienced plaque-unveiler". The prince’s often politically incorrect sense of humour has got him into trouble in…... [read more]

The Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Development (MARD) should review the fishing vessel registration process to ensure the ships are in good condition. Supervision of the shipbuilding process and the people involved should be stepped up, he said. He also wanted commercial banks to untangle loan procedures for fishermen. “Disciplinary action should be taken against individuals and organisations involved in the faulty implementation of the decree,” he said. The Deputy PM also called for changes to the decree that should be made public within the fourth quarter of this year and go into effect at the beginning of next year. Evaluating overall implementation of the decree in recent years, Deputy PM Dung said it was a groundbreaking, comprehensive policy that served the needs of fishermen and contributed to the development of the country’s marine economy.
