Previously unseen images of the Duke of Edinburgh have been released by the prince’s former school.
The pictures from 1937 show Prince Philip in happy times, sailing one of Gordonstoun’s boats, Diligent.
A spokesperson for Gordonstoun said: “In one image Philip shows his confidence at the helm. In the other he demonstrates his confidence doing the washing up.”
The pictures were taken by the great-uncle of a former student, who contacted the Moray school following the Duke’s death on April 9.
Prince Phillip, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, passed away at Windsor Castle at the age of 99.
The Duke and the Queen were married for more than 70 years and Philip dedicated decades of his life to royal duty, serving the nation at the monarch’s side.
His funeral takes place on Saturday.
On Friday, Gordonstoun students took part in an early morning run in tribute to the Duke.
Morning runs were compulsory at the school until the 1990s and more than 100 students and staff, in household groups, ran a 3.5km route from Gordonstoun House to the nearby Coastguard watchtower that Philip reopened in 1955.
The watchtower replaced a wooden hut that the Duke, a member of the “Watchers” – a precursor to the Coastguard – helped build in 1935.
The school’s young sailors will pay their own tribute to him on Saturday ahead of his funeral, laying a wreath at sea off Hopeman Harbour in Moray from the school yacht, while a lone student piper plays.
