Britain mourns the demise of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh

Buckingham Palace confirms the demise of Prince Philip on Friday, 9th April, only two months before this 100th birthday. Prince Philip, spouse of Queen Elizabeth and a member of the British royal family, dies a natural death at Windsor Castle, Windsor, United Kingdom.

Flags at the Buckingham palace were lowered down to half-mast, and Westminster Abbey tolled its tenor bell once every 60 seconds about 99 times to pay tribute to the Prince. People in huge numbers gathered outside Windsor castle to pay respect to the lost soul, and many also placed tributes outside the palace. However, they were discouraged from doing so considering the pandemic. The funerary rites of the Prince will be conducted at St. George’s chapel, and as the officials said, it’s not going to be a state funeral, keeping the national lockdown in mind. 

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, states, “we’re a kingdom united in grief and gratitude” while paying tribute to the longest-serving consort in the history of Britain, Prince Philip. He stresses upon the lifelong dedication of Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, to serve its people. He talks about how the Prince was not only the Queen’s constant support system but an epitome of compassion who selflessly served the nation with utmost honesty. President of the United States, Joe Biden, quotes, “His legacy will live on not only through his family, but in all the charitable endeavors he shaped.” The nation bids a respectful farewell to his beautiful soul.
