aide-de-camp to George VI

This image shows the Duke of Edinburgh in his capacity as Captain General Royal Marines. Note that his rank slide has the royal cypher of his father-in-law George VI; the Duke was a personal aide-de-camp to the king and is thus entitled to wear the cypher.

I was wondering how many men or women capable of putting on a uniform would these days wear that cypher. (George VI died in 1952 - more than 65 years ago.)

I suspect it is highly unlikely that there is anyone else still alive, let alone capable of donning relevant uniform, who would be entitled to wear the GVIR ADC cypher.

If there is anyone else then there can't be more than one or two of them!
