Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
The Duke of Edinburgh has died at the age of 99, on the 9th of April Friday.
A statement from 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."
Saddened to hear of the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
May his soul rest in peace.
My deepest condolence to her Majesty the Queen and the Royal family.
This is a sad day. A big loss.
He reminds me of my grandfather and grandmother who passed away years ago...
Although I'm not from this prominent royal family, just a nobody, I still really feel sad for the Queen and his family.
It's always sad to face the death of beloved family member whether you're a member of Royal family or a commoner.
One thing I'm glad is that at least he died at Windsor castle...
He was also able to spend the last few weeks with his beloved wife, the Queen and his family after he discharged from hospital about 3 weeks ago.
I wished he could make it to his 100th birthday which is 2 more months to go...
But God has taken him...
So I just pray for his soul to rest in peace...
(My grandparents also died in their late 90s... We wanted them to make it to 100 but none of them made it...)
Prince Phillip is one of the very few people I respect in this world, apart from my own parents and grandparents.
He was a very intelligent energetic responsible dutiful gentle man. He dedicated his life and love to his wife, the Queen, to his family and to his country which he served.
If there is another world, I pray that he could finally meet his mother and beloved sister who died very long time ago...
He was the beloved husband to Queen Elizabeth, father to Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. Grandfather to 8 including Prince William, Zara Phillips, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie; and Great-grandfather to 10 children.
Prince Philip had been by the Queen's side throughout her 69-year reign, the longest in British history.
His life was long and extraordinary.
He also fought at World War II and played a key role in modernizing the monarchy.
I also always enjoyed his controversial comments on things which I often time agreed with him deep in my heart (LOL).
He was also famously known for his charitable efforts, which focused on younger people, wildlife conservation and battling the scourge of climate change.
But what made me respect him the most is his unyielding devotion and love to the queen.
Here are some photos.
Rest in Peace...
