JUST IN: Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip dies at 99

The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has passed away. According to the announcement from the Royal Palace, he died peacefully. More details about his funeral will be announced soon. He died at the age of 99.



Royal Palace wrote: "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."

While primarily known for his marriage to the Queen, Philip was an extraordinary figure in his own right. He was born into the turmoil of inter-war Europe and became a naval officer decorated for heroism in World War II.

Prince Philip was born into the royal families of Greece and Denmark. His family left Greece in 1922 and settled in Paris after his uncle, King Constantine I, was overthrown.

Prince Philip was the youngest of five children and the only son. After his parents' separation in 1930, he was sent to England and raised there by his maternal grandmother and uncle.

Prince Philip sits with his fiancee, Princess Elizabeth, in July 1947. He had become a naturalized British citizen and a commoner, using the surname Mountbatten, an English translation of his mother's maiden name. He was also an officer of the British Royal Navy and fought in World War II

Prince Philip and Princess Elizabeth married in November 1947.
