Never-before-seen photos of Prince Philip that were compiled by a member of the Royal Yacht Britannia crew on on his round-the-world cruise in 1959 have come to light.
They show the Duke of Edinburgh visiting various far-flung places, including some of the remotest islands on earth.
Having been put together by an official photographer for the Prince, the album includes images that have never been published before.
In his four-month journey, Prince Philip departed from Portsmouth and travelled to places including India and Pakistan, Rangoon in what is now Myanmar, Singapore, Hong Kong, the Solomon Islands and Bermuda.
The new photographs show the Duke, who served in the Royal Navy during the Second World War, enjoying a trip on an ‘almost extinct’ sailing boat in the Solomon Islands and at the tiller of a native racing canoe off the island of Tarawa.
