>>Prince Philip passed away
Philip Mountbatten is the prince or husband of Queen Elizabeth II of England and has a history of more than 70 years. Although according to the British royal family tradition, he holds the title of prince, but he will never be a king. This right belongs exclusively to the children he and the Queen have together, namely their eldest son Prince Charles and his descendants.
Prince Philip is a tongueless naval officer who helped his wife, Queen Elizabeth, transform the British monarchy.
Philip lives in the shadow of his wife. He married in Westminster Abbey in 1947. In the thousands of ceremonies she participated in during her administration, he always followed the queen, which was the longest in British history.
Although he did not hold an official royal position, the Duke of Edinburgh has a history of more than 70 years and is one of the most influential figures in the royal family.
He is often criticized for his behavior and Lu statements, but his friends say that he has given a certain amount of wit, creativity and vitality to the monarchy.
Elizabeth (Elizabeth) said in 1997 on the 50th anniversary of her marriage to Philip: “He has been my strength and support for these years.”
She said at the time: “Me, his family and many other states owe him much more money than he asked, otherwise we will never know.”
If Philip might not want to live in the shadow of the queen, then he would never show up in public.
In an interview with the BBC on the occasion of his 90th birthday, he hinted that after marrying the Queen, it would be difficult for him to find his role.
“There was no precedent. If I asked someone’what do you want me to do?’, they would look at me blankly-they don’t know, no one knows,” he said at the time.
Elizabeth has helped lead the monarchy in a period of political and social change to adapt the monarchy to the 20th and 21st centuries.
The prince often opposed the traditional palace, transformed the palace, and tried to use the power of the new media television at that time to increase the influence of the royal family.
He personally advocated live broadcasting of Elizabeth’s coronation and secretly cleared outdated habits in the palace. He was the first member of the royal family to be interviewed on television. He also arranged a 90-minute documentary filmed by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) at the Royal Palace, called the Royal Family, which was broadcast in 1969.
