    Prince Philip Dead at 99

    Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, died Friday morning at Windsor Castle. Husband of Queen Elizabeth II, Philip’s service to the royal consort reigned the longest in history. The Royal Family, per BBC News, asked for people to donate to charity instead of leaving flowers. The official royal website launched a condolence book for people who want to pay their respects by sending messages.

    Buckingham Palace announced Prince Philip’s death through a statement Friday. “It is with great sadness that Queen Elizabeth II announces the passing of her beloved husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. He peacefully passed away this morning at Windsor Castle.”

    In a speech by Queen Elizabeth on her Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1997, she complimented her husband’s guidance. “He’s not one to easily accept compliments, but he has truly been my rock and support throughout all these years. My family, along with many other countries, owe him a debt that is greater than he would ever acknowledge or we could ever fully understand.”

    In the last year of his life, Prince Philip lived in isolated quarters with The Queen due to the pandemic. The couple married on November 20, 1947. Their marriage endured 73 years upon the time of his passing.
