Buckingham Palace has this afternoon announced the death of The Duke of Edinburgh at the age of 99.

“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle…The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss,” the Palace statement said.  Details of his funeral arrangements will be announced in due course. Any plans will need to be adjusted to suit the United Kingdom’s COVID-19 restrictions.

Prince Philip, who was born in June 1921 and was the longest serving consort of a British monarch, had spent four weeks in hospital in February-March, and underwent an operation for a pre-existing heart condition.

The Duke is survived by his wife, their four children, eight grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
