Prince Philip passed away on 9 April 2021 at the age of 99. As the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, the Royal Consort often avoided the spotlight during his life.
Born on 10 June, 1921, Prince Philip was the fifth child in his family, born in his family’s home on an island in Greece.
When he was just 18 months old and during a time of political turmoil, his father smuggled him out of Greece and onto a British Royal Navy ship that King George V had sent to collect them.
Philip and Elizabeth married in 1947, but they actually met years earlier when Philip was 13 and Elizabeth was 8, at the wedding of Princess Marina of Reece and the Duke of Kent in 1943.
