Philip speaks out; BRITAIN TODAY ROYALS.

THE Duke of Edinburgh has admitted ahead of his 90th birthday how he is reducing his workload before he reaches his "sell-by date".

In a wide-ranging television interview screened last night to mark the milestone birthday today, Philip discussed his life, work and interests over the past nine decades.

But the royal, who has been the Queen's constant public companion for more than 60 years, stressed how he was "winding down" and looking forward to enjoying himself in his dotage. The royal even said his memory was going and, in his outspoken style, how he favoured discrimination against older people as "you go downhill" in later life.
