Prince William and Kate Middleton led royal tributes to celebrate Prince Philip on his 99th birthday.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in sharing a selection of their favourite photos of the Duke of Edinburgh on social media to mark the occasion.
Prince Philip who is also the Duke of Edinburgh will be spending the day privately with the Queen at Windsor Castle, although they are expected to video call other members of the family including Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their son Archie, who will phone from their home in Los Angeles, according to royal reporter Carolyn Durand, who contributes to Oprah Magazine.
Buckingham Palace last night released a new photograph of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh to mark the milestone. The couple, who have been married for 73 years, were photographed last week standing side-by-side in the quadrangle at Windsor Castle. The Queen and Prince Philip have been in isolation at the residence since the start of lockdown, allowing them to spend more time together than they have done in ‘many years’, one expert noted.
