Buckingham Palace revealed on Friday that Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, had died at the age of 99.
The announcement detailing his death was shared on the Royal Family’s Twitter page.
“Her Majesty The Queen has declared the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” the statement said.

“This morning, His Royal Highness died peacefully at Windsor Castle.

“The Royal Family joins people all over the world in grieving his passing.

“Further updates will be made as soon as possible.”

In 2017, the Duke of Edinburgh, who has been married to Queen Elizabeth for 73 years, reduced his public appearances.
He was the British monarch’s longest-serving consort.
He was admitted to King Edward VII’s hospital in central London in February after being found to be “feeling unwell.”

While the Palace stated that his hospitalization was unrelated to COVID-19, the precise explanation was not disclosed to the media.

He was released in March after a satisfactory surgery for a pre-existing cardiac disease at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London.
With Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip had four children: Charles, Prince of Wales, Anne, Princess Royal, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
