Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II passes away at age 99
Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who had been married to Queen Elizabeth for 73 years passed away at Windsor Castle this morning.
“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. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle,” the Royal Family’s twitter handle said in a post.
Prince Philip, the 99-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth, had left a London hospital on March 16 after a four-week stay for treatment for an infection and to have a heart procedure.
Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was admitted to the private King Edward VII’s Hospital on Feb. 16 after he felt unwell and was given treatment for an unspecified, but not COVID-19-related, illness.
He was transferred briefly at the start of this month to a specialist cardiac centre at another London hospital, where he underwent a successful procedure for a pre-existing heart condition.
