Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh, has died. He passed away at the age of 99, serving as a companion to his wife Queen Elizabeth II for over 60 years.

Due to failing health in recent years, he had kept along until March 16 where he was released from London's King Edward VII Hospital, being admitted a month beforehand as a precautionary measure.

He was sent to the Hospital on advice from his doctor after feeling unwell. One week later, he was battling an unforeseen infection, making him stay in Hospital for longer.

On March 1, Prince Phillip had been taken to St Bartholomew's Hospital to undergo tests that returned results that turned out to be pre-existing heart conditions. On March 4 his condition was triumphantly carried out.

In a tweet from the Royal Family, a statement was made regarding his passing.

“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.”
