Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, the husband to Queen Elizabeth II, has died this morning, at the age of 99.
This was announced by the Queen on various media outlets.
The Queen and Prince Phillip were married for more than 7 decades.
Born to the Greek Royal family, Prince Phillip is the longest serving consort in the Royal Family, and his service included the recent period where the 1000 year old monarchy was forced to re-invent itself to meet the demands of the 21st century.
This included the recent global media focus on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which drew both support and criticism for the Royal Family.
The Netflix series, “The Crown” portrayed Prince Phillip as a central personality in the Royal Family
