This news follows a sombre time for Queen Elizabeth II who recently celebrated her 95th birthday which also marked her first without her husband Prince Philip.
Prince Philip, 99, passed away following a long duration spent in hospital.
Announcing his death in a statement, Buckingham Palace said,
“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces 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. Further announcements will made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”
The Duke’s funeral was a lowkey affair and only welcomed 30 guests due to restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Guests included Prince William., Prince Harry, Prince Charles and The Queen.
