The Queen’s husband dies at 99

Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, Prince Philip, has died.
Buckingham Palace announced in a statement today that the Duke of Edinburgh died at Windsor Castle on Friday morning.

His passing comes a couple weeks after spending a month in hospital where he underwent a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition.

He was 99 years old.

Prince Phillip is recorded as the longest-serving consort in British history.

Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Prince Phillip “inspired the lives of countless young people” and “earned the affection of generations … in the United Kingdom, across the Commonwealth, and around the world”.
