18 Photos From The Life Of Prince Philip Who Passed Away This Morning At The Age Of 99

The Royal Family and Brits everywhere are in mourning. Buckingham Palace has announced the sad news that Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, has passed away in his sleep on Friday, the 9th of April. “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.”

Prince Philip passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle at the age of 99, a mere two months from celebrating his 100th birthday.

The prince married Princess Elizabeth in 1947, a whole five years become she assumed the throne. Prince Philip was the longest-serving royal consort in British history, reports the BBC.

Pop-culture and celebrity expert Mike Sington, from LA, told Bored Panda that he and all the others on the West Coast of the US are just waking up now and getting the sad news. “Our hearts are heavy for the royal family, especially The Queen,” he shared what the mood in the United States is like right now.

“I think his passing will bring them closer together,” Mike said about the Royals. “For the time being you will see and hear less of Harry and Meghan,” he shared his thoughts, regarding the recent events that have been in the news not long ago.

“In light of more recent controversies surrounding the royal family, history and the media will be kind to Prince Philip and his legacy.”

The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, said that Prince Philip inspired the lives of countless young people. “He helped to steer the Royal Family and the monarchy so that it remains an institution indisputably vital to the balance and happiness of our national life,” the PM said. “Prince Philip earned the affection of generations here in the United Kingdom, across the Commonwealth, and around the world.”

Johnson pointed out that the Duke of Edinburgh had been one of the last surviving people who had fought in the Second World War. “From that conflict, he took an ethic of service that he applied throughout the unprecedented changes of the post-War era. Like the expert carriage driver that he was, he helped to steer the Royal Family and the monarchy so that it remains an institution indisputably vital to the balance and happiness of our national life.”

Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, sent her and the Scottish people’s deepest condolences to the Queen. Meanwhile, the leader of the Labour Party, Sir Keir Starmer was saddened to hear that Britain had lost an “extraordinary public servant” who’d be long remembered most of all for his “extraordinary commitment and devotion to the Queen.”

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, said that Prince Philip constantly put the interests of others ahead and above of his own and was a model Christian. “The archbishop added: “As we recover and rebuild after the terrible trial of the coronavirus pandemic, we will need fortitude and a deep sense of commitment to serving others.”

Britain will enter a period of mourning to pay respect to the Queen’s husband

Recently, the prince spent a month in hospital for treatment, leaving it in March.

Prince Philip and the Queen have left a huge family legacy together: they have had four children altogether, as well as eight grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.

“Their first son, the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, was born in 1948, followed by his sister, the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, in 1950, the Duke of York, Prince Andrew, in 1960 and the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward, in 1964,” the BBC writes.

Prince Philip himself was born on 10 June 1921 on the Greek island of Corfu, a mere 3 years after the end of the First World War. The prince’s father was Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark, a younger son of King George I of the Hellenes. Meanwhile, his mother was Princess Alice, a daughter of Lord Louis Mountbatten, as well as a great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

“He is someone who doesn’t take easily to compliments but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years,” the Queen earlier said of her beloved husband

In the photograph Her Majesty and His Royal Highness are seen looking at an anniversary card made by Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, alongside other cards and letters sent by well-wishers. (Image credits: theroyalfamily)

Buckingham Palace has shared that “further announcements will be made in due course” and said that “the Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”

Prince Philip played a key role in the development of the modern monarchy in Britain, even though he himself was never officially given the title of prince consort. He lived for his duty as a royal, having given up a promising naval career to focus exclusively on it.

“Having made this choice, he immersed himself wholeheartedly in national life, carving out a unique public role. He was the most energetic member of the royal family with, for many decades, the busiest engagements diary,” The Guardian praised the royal. “Even when well-advanced in years, he could be seen on walkabouts hoisting small children over security barriers to enable them to present their posies to his wife.”

However, for his many efforts, the prince rarely received public recognition. Part of this was because the relationship between the press and the Duke of Edinburgh was strained. He called the press “bloody reptiles,” who, in turn, focused on his gaffes and mistakes.

Prince Philip was many things. Honest, blunt, even offensive; outspoken, charming, witty, engaging, loving, and bound to his duty to his country and his Queen.

The deaths of royals are always bound by the strictest of procedures. Everything has been prepared in advance and won’t deviate from those plans. The secret code for Prince Philip’s death is known as Operation Forth Bridge, setting out the protocol and procedures for what happens after his death: from the funeral and burial to what lies ahead in the future.

Forth Bridge refers to a UNESCO bridge in Edinburgh which is particularly fitting as Prince Philip is the Duke of Edinburgh, explains The New Daily.

It is likely that Prince Philip’s funeral will be far more private than those of other royals, despite being entitled to a full state funeral. He was uncomfortable with too much fuss and attention, so may have asked for a simpler event and, most likely, only family members, friends, and the Commonwealth heads of state will be invited to the funeral.

Britain will enter a period of national mourning, set to last around two weeks. Flags will be flown at half-mast and the affairs of state will be postponed. What’s more, TV presenters will all wear black to show their respect for the prince.

Good post but can I just point out that the Queen and Prince Philip didn't visit Ireland in 2020 - it was in 2011. Just wanted to point before someone decides to roast you over a little thing. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did visit in 2020 just before lockdown

All the people being rude to the dead, give him a break. One of his sisters and her fiancé (and child I think) died in a place crash, and his mother was put in an asylum for being a schizophrenic. He was exiled from his country when he was still a toddler, and at first the other members of the royal family were wary of him, as he was foreign and many criticised him. Because of this, only his mother could attend his wedding. He also fought in WW2, which in case you have forgotten, was one of the most horrific conflicts of all time. I think we can let him off for saying some iffy things and simply being of his time, seeing as he has actually faced racism himself. Unless you guys have been through anything at all like what he has (if you have, my apologies), I think you can't criticise him for much, and say that he lived in 'luxury' and was 'entitled'. As it happens, there are one or two things I don't think he should have said, but we all make mistakes. He's, after all,gone through lots

He rubs it with a balloon because he likes that look. Seriously, he's frequently been seen ruffling it to deliberately make it look messy prior to coming out in front of cameras. I've seen him do it on camera and heard broadcasters mention it. He thinks it appeals to the plebs. He's wrong but then he's a prat.

You know what? We've lost a good many people due to Covid. People have died, alone and scared, in hospitals without family around them. Husbands have lost wives, wives have lost husbands. Each and every person who has died meant something to someone else. I am sorry for anyone's death but to make such a big deal of his when so many have lost so much..... it's frankly distasteful. He was no better than anyone else who has died. He lived a life of privilege (that I helped pay for as a taxpayer) and he died in privilege at home, with his wife by his side. He was lucky. So it's a shame but that is all. Better men than him have died in more tragic circumstances.

I'm really not a big fan of British monarchy, I seriously see them as the last remnant of the British Empire, and I do not have any form of respect for them. They do not matter in the grand scheme of things, and I'm kinda glad the world is finally realizing that. We've put way too much power in their hands, even if it's just "ceremonial" the Queen is still very much an evil person. I mean they kidnapped a bunch of kids in Canada in the 60's and got away with it. She was pro-residential schools too, and and those were evil, evil places. I want her out of my country, we should have gotten independence a long time ago. Sad to hear he died, but glad to hear there's one less monarch on this planet. Sorry not sorry.

Gail F

The Queen never set policy; and did not initiate any kidnapping of children in Canada. Also, Prince Philip was not a monarch; he was a monarch's consort, so your comment "glad to hear there's one less monarch on this planet" is inaccurate as well as in poor taste.

How can we remember any of that when it isn't true?

I'm really not a big fan of British monarchy, I seriously see them as the last remnant of the British Empire, and I do not have any form of respect for them. They do not matter in the grand scheme of things, and I'm kinda glad the world is finally realizing that. We've put way too much power in their hands, even if it's just "ceremonial" the Queen is still very much an evil person. I mean they kidnapped a bunch of kids in Canada in the 60's and got away with it. She was pro-residential schools too, and and those were evil, evil places. I want her out of my country, we should have gotten independence a long time ago. Sad to hear he died, but glad to hear there's one less monarch on this planet. Sorry not sorry.

The Queen never set policy; and did not initiate any kidnapping of children in Canada. Also, Prince Philip was not a monarch; he was a monarch's consort, so your comment "glad to hear there's one less monarch on this planet" is inaccurate as well as in poor taste.
