"The Duke met @TomCruise who is a supporter of @OutwardBoundUK. The charity helps youngsters reach potential through outdoor activities," the royal family tweeted.

Outward Bound UK describes itself as "an educational charity that uses the outdoors to help develop young people from all walks of life."

The pair appeared to enjoy each other's company during the event at Buckingham Palace. Their meeting comes just a couple of months after Philip and his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, retreated from the public eye around the holidays to recover from their illnesses, so it's great to see the 95-year-old looking healthy and in good spirits.
