His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, the man that has stood by the Queen’s the past 60 years has died.

The Prince who recently returned to Castle after spending a month in hospital, died today just two months before one hundredth birthday.
Prince Philip, who would have turned 100years on June 10, he has been home recovering from a heart operation, which took place at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in the City of London last month. He had been admitted to the private King Edward VII’s Hospital in Marylebone as a precaution after feeling unwell in February.
In line with his own wishes, there will be no lying in state and no state funeral. Although funeral plans have been in place for years, they will have to be modified to reflect Covid-19 restrictions.
According to royal sources a few years ago, the duke used to take great amusement in the fact that many of those who had been involved in the planning of his funeral had themselves died before him.
