What other royals did on a day of history

Life goes on. All eyes might have been on Prince Philip as he retired from public life with a final solo engagement at Buckingham Palace on August 2nd 2017, but other royals were marching into the future as the curtain fell. On the day that the Duke of Edinburgh retired from public life, there was a handful of royal appearances across the continent. Here's what other royals did on a day for the history books.

The Princess Royal was in Scotland where she attended the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo cast rehearsal at Redford Barracks. Anne, who is the Tattoo's patron, was all smiles - clearly her retirement card for her dad went down well.

Princess Sofia of Sweden had a packed day in Bastad. Her morning started with attendance at the Sustainability Tomorrow conference in the city - her charity, Project Playground, is one of its main partners.

In the evening, the princess was at a charity dinner in the city, getting everyone thinking by choosing baby blue for her outfit with just weeks to go before the arrival of her second child (there was a lot of blue last time round when pregnant with Prince Alexander, check it out here).

In Spain, King Felipe was hitting the waves as he took part in the 36th Copa del Rey off the coast of Mallorca where he's currently holidaying with Queen Letizia, their daughters Leonor and Sofia, and his wider family.

Also at the event were Pierre Casiraghi and his wife, Beatrice, who welcomed a baby boy, Stefano, earlier this year.

In Norway, things were much more low key. The Royal Household posted a photo on its Instagram page of the library in Dronningpark where all summer long, the gates are open for people to pop in and read in the sunshine. You need a bit of time off to be able to enjoy that - perfect for a certain prince who was stepping into retirement on a day of history as royal life carried on.
