The British Queen’s husband, the Duke of Edinburgh Philip, has died at the age of 99, Buckingham Palace announced on Twitter.
“It is with deep sadness that Her Majesty the Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” the statement said.
The husband of Elizabeth II has been seriously ill for the past few months. Despite the support of the British and relatives, Prince Philip was unable to cope with his health problems.
Many thought that Philip’s condition worsened after he was vaccinated against the coronavirus. However, members of the royal family claimed that the Duke was treated on the recommendation of his doctor. In February, the husband of Elizabeth II was hospitalized in a hospital in London with well-being complaints. After that, he underwent heart surgery.
Surgical intervention at such an advanced age is always dangerous. And yet, in March, Philip was released from the hospital and reunited with his family. Then it seemed that the danger was over. But on the ninth of April, Buckingham Palace announced the death of the Queen’s husband.
