Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh was created admiral of the fleet in the Royal New Zealand Navy in 1954, following the coronation of his wife Elizabeth II as Queen. He is not an admiral merely in his capacity as admiral of the fleet in Britain's Royal Navy – New Zealand, like Australia, maintains a separate rank.
