Prince Philip was recently photographed riding a horse in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The 97-year-old was accompanied by two women who looked like professional equestrians. In the snap, the Duke of Edinburgh is seen handling his horse while wearing a hat and thick layers of clothing. The recent sighting of Prince Philip is the first time that he was seen in public after he attended Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding on Oct. 12.

Prince Philip has always been fond of horseback riding. The dad of four was also photographed driving a horse and carriage around Windsor Castle in November of last year. At that time, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband was also accompanied by the same women behind him. He also wore similar clothes to the ones he wore during Monday’s appearance.

In the 1970s, Prince Philip was a competitive horse and carriage driver. He represented Britain at several European and World Championships. His sport typically involved two or four-wheeled carriages pulled by a single horse, a tandem or a four-in-hand team.

In related news, Prince Philip also made headlines this week after his photo from years ago was uploaded side by side with Prince Harry’s picture from the Anzac Day memorial in Australia recently. Chris Jackon, a royal photographer, noted the similarities between Prince Philip and his grandson, Prince Harry.

“I spotted this beautiful 1957 vintage cover of a @parismatch_magazine whilst visiting our wedding venue in France a couple of years ago. Who does it remind you of? Swipe right to see! I think it might have been colorized from a black and white negative,” Jackson wrote.

Royal fans also couldn’t help but notice how Prince Harry resembled his grandfather when Prince Philip was still young. Both of them had the same face shape, and Prince Philip also sported thick beard years ago.

The Royals’ photo also silenced rumors that Prince Harry is the son of Princess Diana’s ex-lover, James Hewitt, and not of Prince Charles. Since he looks exactly like his grandfather, there is no way that Prince Harry is not related to the Prince of Wales. Prince Charles is the son of Prince Philip and the Queen.
