Prince Philip has caused concern among fans as he was absent from the Royal Family's reunion photo.

Why was Prince Philip missing from the new Royal Family photo?

The photo was the first picture of most of the senior Royal Family members together since the coronavirus epidemic began. 

It was taken at Windsor Castle following the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s royal tour of Britain.

The Queen is pictured with Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Cambridges’ and Princess Anne.

but the Duke of Edinburgh does not feature.

This could be because Prince Philip, 99, officially retired from royal duties back in 2017.

However, he is still often pictured with the Queen.

He is believed to be staying with the monarch at Windsor Castle.

Fans have now expressed their concern for the Duke, with one social media user commenting: "Brilliant end to a fantastic trip! Sad not to see Prince Philip but lovely to see our royal family back together again."

Another added: "Pity not to see Prince Philip.'

A third questioned: "But why is Prince Philip not present?”
