The Duke of Edinburgh's last official engagement today

August 2, 2017:

The BBC World Service TV today shows HRH meeting a senior Daoist delegation at Windsor Castle, April 2017

The Duke of Edinburgh has attended over 22,000 solo engagements since 1952. The Captain General's Parade at Buckingham Palace today with the Royal Marines was his last.

Some of those 22,000 have been for ARC, and for more than 30 years he has been supporting our work and the work of many religions around the world in protecting the environment.

His most recent official engagement to support ARC was in April, at Windsor Castle near London, with three senior Daoist Masters coming from China to talk about the environmental challenges, how they are working to combat them, and how important His Royal Highness' unwavering support has been. Here is the story behind that meeting.
