His passing came just months afore his 100th birthday in June; an occasion characteristically marked in Britain with a laudatory memorandum from the queen, who is currently Britain’s longest-serving empress. The pair, who reveled on their 73rd wedding anniversary in November, had been living principally in seclusion at Windsor Castle, west of London, since their senior age put them at sharp danger from Covid-19.

The Prince also went through a hip surgery in 2018 and in January 2019, he arose intact after his automobile was entangled in a traffic accident that incapacitated two people close to the monarch’s Sandringham estate in eastern England.
