Prince Philip passed away

Prince Philip has died.  He was 99 years old.

The Duke of Edinburgh was hospitalised in February and, after 4 weeks, returned home to Windsor Castle where he was self-isolating with the queen amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Buckingham Palace announced this morning that he had died.

“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle,” the family said in a statement.

Philip married the then-Princess Elizabeth in 1947. He and the queen have four children, eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

He retired from public engagements in 2017 after carrying out more than 20,000 of them. Philip was a member of the Greek royal family and was born on the Greek island of Corfu in 1921. He was an avid sportsman who loved country pursuits. He had four children, eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
