Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth, has died

Britain’s Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II and a leading figure in the British royal family, has died.

The Duke of Edinburgh, 99, was being treated at the hospital before being transferred to Windsor Castle.

A statement from Buckingham Palace said that Prince Philip passed away this morning at Windsor Castle. He had been out of public view for around three years due to old age.

It made headlines in February when Prince Philip drove himself to the hospital after realizing he was unwell. But the doctor who examined him decided that he should be admitted to the hospital.

The doctors found that Prince Philip had no symptoms of COVID-19. As he was about to celebrate his 100th birthday on June 10, he accepted the opinion of doctors that the current precautions were good to improve his health and later intervened in public with extreme caution.

Born on June 10, 1921, on the Greek island of Corfu, Philip was the only son of Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark, and Princess of Battenberg. At the age of eighteen, he joined the Royal Navy. He graduated as a top cadet from the Britannia Royal Naval College.

Greek Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth met at the Naval College in Dartmouth in 1939. The two were very distant relatives and had been in constant communication since then. Philip became a British citizen and married the Queen on November 20, 1947 in Westminster Abbey. After the marriage, the prince quit his job in the Navy and gave his wife full support.
