Death has stricken once again as it leaves the whole world in tears as it laid it hands on the royal family of Britain.
It has been reported that the husband of Queen Elizabeth II Prince Philip has passed away recently as confirmed by the Royal House on Twitter.
“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced 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.” The Royal House On Twitter
He spent four weeks in hospital earlier this year to receive treatment for an infection and have a heart procedure but returned to Windsor in early March.
His last public appearance came last July at a military ceremony at Windsor Castle, the royal palace to the west of London where he and the monarch have resided during COVID-19 lockdowns.
“He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years,” Queen Elizabeth II said in a personal tribute to him made in a speech marking their 50th wedding anniversary in 1997.
The couple married in 1947, five years before Queen Elizabeth II succeeded to the throne.
