David and Samantha Cameron are to play host to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh in Downing Street.

The Prime Minister and his wife will be holding a lunch at Number 10 to celebrate Philip's recent 90th birthday.

Mr Cameron spoke of the country's gratitude for Philip's work earlier this month, before the Duke became a nonagenarian on June 10.

The Prime Minister described the royal as a "remarkable man who has given years of his service to our country, someone who has defended his nation in time of war, a man who has stood alongside Her Majesty the Queen for over six decades, a man who has given his time and effort and passion to so many great causes up and down the country, across the Commonwealth and indeed the world".
