BREAKING: Prince Philip has died at Windsor Castle aged 99

Prince Philip dies aged 99

The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, has passed away at the age of 99, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” the palace shared in an official statement.

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.”

The Duke recently suffered poor health, after spending time in hospital during the Christmas period for a blocked artery.

Serving as consort to his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, for more than 60 years, Prince Philip – who would have turned 100 in June – was born in Corfu, Greece, to Greek royalty and retired from his official royal duties in 2017 due to failing health.

The cause of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death has not been confirmed by the palace.

“The royal family join with people around the world in mourning his loss,” the palace shared in their official statement, adding “further announcements” will be made in “due course”.
