Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburg, passed away at Windsor Castle two months before his 100th birthday on June 10th. The cause of death was not disclosed, but the British royal family said he died peacefully.

A Greece-born royal, Philip married his third cousin Queen Elizabeth in 1947. He became British consort to the sovereign after King George VI died in 1952, making him the longest-serving consort to a British sovereign. Philip retired from his royal duties in August 2017, having completed 22,000 solo engagements, 637 overseas visits, delivered an estimated 5,493 speeches, and worked as a patron to almost 800 organizations.
