The longest-serving consort of Britain has passed away. The morning on the 9th of April the world received a sorrowful remark from the British royal family stating that the queen’s husband Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh has peacefully passed away at Windsor Castle. This was quite sad news for the millions of Britains that adore the monarchy and millions more who are fans of the royals.
Prince Philip lived a very fulfilling life not only as a husband to the queen but as a loving father, grandfather, and great grandfather to all his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and as a prominent figurehead in the monarchy. He was married to the queen for almost seven decades, before which he was a member of the Greek royal family.
His life spanned almost a century of European history, and as a World War II veteran, he was well respected and honored. He will surely be missed by the people of Britain, his family, and millions of adoring fans worldwide.
