LONDON (AP) - Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, will step down as president or patron of more than a dozen organizations when he turns 90 next year.

Buckingham Palace says Philip will reduce his commitments, but will still be associated with over 800 organizations.

Among other positions, Philip will step down from his role as chancellor of the Universities of Edinburgh and Cambridge.

He will also relinquish his presidency of the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth.

A palace spokeswoman said Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, will be flying to the Gulf with the queen this week for a five-day state visit.
