Prince Philip fleet review

On Friday 5 June Prince Philip headed to Cowes in the Isle of Wight to review the Royal Yacht Squadron's fleet. The event was held to mark the bicentenary of the squadron - of which Prince Philip is Admiral - having served in the Royal Navy between 1939 and 1951 and currently holding the title of Lord High Admiral of the Royal Navy.

The day included a procession which saw a flotilla of more than 180 yachts make their way down the Solent. Founded as The Yacht Club in 1815, the Royal Yacht Squadron has long had a relationship with royals at sea, counting the Queen as its patron and George IV as an early member.

Yachts taking part in the procession, all of which belonged to members of the Royal Yacht Squadron and are therefore allowed to fly the White Ensign, included the Royal Navy frigate HMS Northumberland.
