The Royal Family Celebrates Prince Philip's 98th Birthday


From Harper's BAZAAR

Congratulations are in order as Prince Philip is celebrating his 98th birthday on June 10, 2019.

The royal family has already begun celebrating the Duke of Edinburgh's impressive birthday, by posting a plethora of tributes on social media. Philip was born on Corfu in Greece in 1921, and married Elizabeth on November 20, 1947.

Prince Philip skipped Trooping the Colour this past weekend, which marks Queen Elizabeth's second birthday (her real birthday is on April 21). But perhaps he was merely conserving his energy for his own birthday celebrations-which include being inundated with social media posts in his honor.

The royal family's official Twitter account posted a photo of the prince, along with the caption, "The Duke of Edinburgh was born on this day in 1921. In this picture His Royal Highness was photographed in 1953, 66 years ago. #HappyBirthdayHRH":

One of Philip's sons, Prince Charles, wrote a tribute to his father via the Clarence House social media account, which he shares with his wife, Duchess Camilla.

Fellow son, Prince Andrew, also posted an adorable tribute to his father:

Kate Middleton and Prince William celebrated Prince Philip's milestone via their Kensington Palace Twitter account writing, "Wishing a very Happy 98th Birthday to His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh! #HappyBirthdayHRH":

The Daily Mail's royal correspondent, Rebecca English, revealed, "In honour of the 98th birthday of the Duke of Edinburgh, the Army will fire two spectacular Gun Salutes in London today.:

English also reflected on Philip's retirement from official royal duties writing, "I remember the Duke carrying out his last 'official' solo engagement at Buckingham Palace in 2017. Some royal staff had tears in their eyes as he walked off along the forecourt."
