Prince Philip | Gone But Not Forgotten | Tribute To Duke of Edinburgh
After 70-years spent in the public eye, Prince Phillip was the longest-serving royal consort in British history and while his adult life was one chock-full of privilege, his childhood was anything but. In fact, it was marked by tragedy and loneliness. As a member of both Greek and Danish royalty, Philp and his family were banished from their native country while he was still only a toddler and Philip subsequently moved from one European nation to another, in the search of a home. He would finally find one in the arms of his distant cousin, Queen Elizabeth II before her ascension to the British throne in 1952. A naval officer and a man known for his mischievous sense of humor, Philip remained by Elizabeth’s side for over sixty years until his recent passing, which, fittingly enough, would see the Queen by his side to the very end.
