On June 10, Prince Philip could have celebrated a centenary.
Queen Elizabeth moved the public to tears with an important gesture on the anniversary of the late Prince Philip. On June 10, the Duke of Edinburgh could have turned 100 years old, but Philip did not live to see his birthday in a matter of months. The queen took the death of her beloved man hard, with whom she spent more than half a century together.
The queen simply could not ignore this important day for her and Philip. Elizabeth found time in the busy schedule to plant a rose variety specially bred for Philip next to her own castle. Elizabeth was helped in this by her personal gardener.
Earlier, the royal was approached by Keith Weed, a member of the Royal Crop Society. It was he who officially came up with the idea of creating a special rose.
It is expected that these roses will soon be on sale in local markets and shops. From the proceeds from the sale of each flower, 2.5 euros will be sent to a charity, according to the Daily Mail.
