On the morning of 9 April 2021, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh died of "old age"[1] at Windsor Castle, at the age of 99, two months before his 100th birthday. He was the longest-serving royal consort in world history.[2] The Queen, who was reportedly at her husband's bedside when he died,[3] described his death as "having left a huge void in her life".[4]

The palace said Philip died peacefully,[5] which was confirmed by his daughter-in-law, the Countess of Wessex, who told the press, it was "so gentle. It was just like somebody took him by the hand and off he went.".[6] The funeral took place on 17 April 2021 at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, and he was interred in the Royal Vault inside St George's.[7] The Duke's body is expected to be moved and interred in the King George VI Memorial Chapel in St. George's, after the death of the Queen.[8]

His Royal Majesty The King wishes to express his deepest sympathy and condolences to the British Royal Family regarding the death of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His thoughts and prayers are with the people of Great Britain.

Maríe, Queen of Istria also sent her formal condoleances to the royal family:

With great sorrow, the Royal House of the Republic of Istria was informed of the unexpected death of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Both I and my whole family send messages of condolence to the British royal family of Windsor. This was an important royal figure, who inspired the Istrian family, and who not infrequently gave us a revolutionary impetus that made us move forward. A born soldier, Prince Philip fought all his life for what he had and was an extraordinarily wise man about the decisions he made. The marriage with Princess Elizabeth at that time, represented for him the apogee of his public presence, from then until now being a model of character and humanity for all the royal families. The power with which he tried to present the royal family more humanely, but also his desire to save the planet and all the animals that are with us is a great achievement of his career.

— Maríe I of Istria


The President, Aidan McGrath, sent his formal condolences to the royal family via the online book of condolences stating:

I send my deepest sympathies to the Her Majesty, the royal family and the people of the United Kingdom and its commonwealth realms and dependencies. The Duke of Edinburgh was a pioneer in nature preservation, worked graciously with many charities and served in both the Mediterranean and Pacific theatres in the efforts against evil. May he be remember for these success in his life and his over 70 years of dedication to the country and Her Majesty. May his soul rest in peace.
