Meanwhile, over at Highgrove House, Camilla was addressed by The Rifles’ Colonel Commandant, General Sir Patrick Sanders, and welcomed as the new Colonel-in-Chief.

The ceremony is Philip’s first engagement in more than a year.

The duke announced his retirement from royal life in 2017, but had still retained this military title until now.
