Some people spend their lives searching for The One, others find it after kissing a few frogs, but rarely you’ll come across stories of love at first sight that endure the test of time. Queen Elizabeth knew at the very tender age of 13 that Prince Philip, then 18, was someone special and after 73 years of marriage, their captivating romance is one for the ages. He was her“strength and stay” for the decades they spent together – and it’s all thanks to a fateful meeting in 1939. And while the world mourns Philip’s death, his family grieve the loss of a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. WHO celebrates his extraordinary life on page 6. Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I was thrilled to hear Keanu Reeves is set…

1921–2021 prince philip ‘he has been my strength all these years’

“I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know”-QUEEN ELIZABETH In what came as possibly anticipated but nonetheless heartbreaking news, Buckingham Palace announced the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip on April 9. In a statement, the palace said the Duke of Edinburgh, who was just two months shy of his landmark 100th birthday, had “passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle”. “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband,” the statement read. “The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.” The duke, who was the longest-serving consort in British history, had returned to Windsor Castle on March 16 after…

farewell to the duke

“I was always struck by his obvious joy at life”-JUSTIN WELBY, THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY With the Duke of Edinburgh set to be farewelled in an intimate ceremony on April 17 (see breakout), many around the world have taken to reflecting on what a dutiful, yet colourful, life he led. Born sixth in line to the Greek throne on June 10, 1921, on his family’s kitchen table, Philip – then known as Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark – had a rather rocky start to life. At the tender age of 18 months, his uncle, King Constantine I of Greece, was forced to abdicate and the family found themselves fleeing the island of Corfu – with Philip in a makeshift cot fashioned from an orange box. After finding refuge in Paris, Philip…

BORN A ROYAL Philip was born into the Greek royal family, with royal roots connecting him to the monarchies of Denmark, Germany, Russia and Britain. CHILD’S PLAY Despite a turbulent family life, Philip (pictured here with schoolmates in France) has fond memories of his childhood.

I just had to get on with it.” EARLY YEARS Philip was primarily educated at Gordonstoun boarding school in Scotland, where he excelled in cricket and hockey. HIS MAMA Estranged from his mother for a lot of his youth, they were reunited in 1937 and she even came to live at Buckingham Palace before her death in 1969.…

laid to rest

The duke will get his wish of a “no-fuss” funeral, thanks to COVID-19 restrictions in the UK. Instead of the pomp and spectacle of a state funeral, his loved ones will say goodbye in a small service of just 30 – his wife, children, grandchildren and their spouses said to be the majority of said mourners – held at Windsor Castle on April 17. While it will still be broadcast live to the public, the St George’s Chapel service will be the smallest royal send-off in modern times. “I’m not really interested in what goes on my tombstone,” the duke once admitted.…
