2017: The Telegraph reports his claim to be the 'world's most experienced plaque-unveiler'. He announced his retirement from public life a few days later, and unveiled his last plaque on 2 August 2017.

2018: We learnt that Matt, cartoonist at the Telegraph, celebrated the Prince's retirement with a drawing, showing curtains around a plaque which reads "unveil your own damn plaque".

He died, aged 99 years, on 9 April 2021.
