Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh has died, as his death was announced on Friday 9th April 2021, by the Royal Family. He was aged, 100.
Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh died few weeks after he returned home from hospital.
He was born in 1921.
In a statement released a few minutes ago, announcing his death, the Royal family said:
“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.
Further announcements will made in due course.
The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss,” the statement said.
Prince Philip was discharged from the hospital a few weeks ago after he was initially taken by car to the private King Edward VII’s Hospital in central London on February 16, after telling his doctor he felt unwell. But two weeks later, he was moved to St Bartholomew’s Hospital in the City of London by ambulance.
The duke underwent a successful procedure on a pre-existing heart condition at Barts on March 3, just three months before his 100th birthday, before returning to King Edward VII’s a few days later to recuperate and continue his treatment.
Prince Philip has been treated for heart problems in the past and in 2011 was taken to hospital by helicopter from Sandringham after suffering chest pains as the royal family was preparing for Christmas.
He was treated for a blocked coronary artery at Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire and underwent a minimally invasive procedure of coronary stenting.
The duke had been spending the latest lockdown at Windsor with the Queen for their safety, alongside a reduced household of staff dubbed HMS Bubble. The couple, who have been married for 73 years, received their first Covid-19 jabs in January.
