Prayers and condolences to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and her family in the loss of a beloved family member. May God's peace confort you in this time of deep sorrow.

Philip's death certificate also listed his former names:

Indeed, it was everywhere (Telegraph, Newsweek, The Sun, Independent, TMZ, Hello Magazine to name a few).

According to Royal Central it was The Telegraph that obtained the death certificate.

Thank you for sharing the Royal Central's link, especially for those without a subscription to The Telegraph.

On Prince Philip's death certificate, the Cause of Death was listed as "old age", which was confirmed by Sir Huw Thomas, head of the royal medical household. I did not realise that "old age" could be listed as the cause of death on death certificate for those aged over 80 whose health is gradually declining (as observed by their long term doctor).

Quote:
The official document was obtained by The Telegraph and revealed that the 99-year-old Duke died from “old age.” This cause of death can be listed on the death certificates of those who are over the age of 80 and whose health gradually declined over time while being observed by their long-term doctor.
Prince Philip's occupations were also listed:
Quote:
His first occupation listed on the death certificate was that of “Naval Officer,” and his second occupation was listed as “Husband of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, The Sovereign.”

Years ago in the UK family doctors would sometimes put ‘senile decay’ as the cause of death on death certificates of their very old patients. Means the same thing, I suppose.

It must come from some publication.

The Royal Central links to a Telegraph article which is billed as an "exclusive", so the certificate appears to have been obtained by the Telegraph indeed.

Exclusive: Duke of Edinburgh’s official cause of death recorded as ‘old age’


Quote:
The death certificate reveals that his death was certified by Sir Huw Thomas, the head of the royal medical household, who was knighted earlier this year.

He declared the cause simply as "old age", an accepted description if the patient is over 80 and if the doctor has personally cared for them for a long period, observing a gradual decline.
ETA: Apologies, I see AC21091968 already posted the quote from the Telegraph explaining the cause of death.
