The Queen’s consort, HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh has today been celebrating his 90th Birthday. He has marked the occasion by hosting a charity event at Buckingham Palace which included a spontaneous rendition of “Happy Birthday”.
The Duke who gave up his navy career in 1951 to support his wife today was given the title of Lord High Admiral of The Navy. Queen Elizabeth, who previously held the title has in the past described Prince Philip her rock.
Any follower of royal events will have no doubt that he has been a tower of strength and support for the whole family throughout the past 60 years. It is for this reason that today we raise a glass to The Duke of Edinburgh. Happy Birthday your highness!
