“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle,” a statement on the royal family website read. “Further announcements will be made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”

Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth were married for more than seven decades. The Duke of Edinburgh supported his wife and traveled around the world to do his duties.

The former Royal Navy lieutenant retired from the public eye in 2017. However, he was in the news all the time. His children and grandchildren were part of the royal drama after all.

Prince Phillip was in and out of hospitals in the last few years. He struggled with multiple issues and things got worse these years. The Prince was hospitalized in February and spent a month at King Edward VII’s Hospital in Central London.

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson delivered an emotional statement. According to him, the Duke will be remembered for “his steadfast support for her majesty the queen, not just as her consort by her side every day of her reign, but as her husband, her strength and stay of more than 70 years.”

“Prince Philip earned the affection of generations here in the United Kingdom, across the Commonwealth, and around the world,” Johnson said. “He was an environmentalist and a champion of the natural world long before it was fashionable.”
