More About Prince Philip – The Duke Of Edinburgh
Prince Phillip and the Queen of Britain had four children, the eldest Prince Charles, the second daughter Princess Anne, the third son Prince Andrew and the youngest Prince Edward, 57.
Prince Philip and the Queen became the parents of their first child before their first wedding anniversary, and they had a second child in 1950.
His eldest son, Prince Charles, had his first marriage to Lady Diana, which ended in divorce, while his second son, Prince Andrew’s, and his daughter Princess Anne’s first marriage ended in divorce.
Although His Royal Highness did not become king himself, his 72-year-old son is now the crown prince and will be able to ascend the throne after the death of his 94-year-old mother, the Queen.
Prior to the death of Prince Philip, the Queen’s mother died at the age of 101 in the royal family in 2002, while the Queen’s sister died just a few weeks later that year.
The Queen’s sister and mother were preceded in death after Princess Diana, who was separated from the royal family in 1997 after being killed in a traffic accident.
Although Prince Philip was apparently healthy, after the age of 95, he was diagnosed with some health complications and was admitted to the hospital from time to time.
Prince Philip was treated at two different hospitals in London for about a month in February this year due to a health problem.
The Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9, 2021, at the age of 99, two weeks after being discharged from hospitals in mid-March, apparently due to various medical reasons.
