Husband of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, dies at 99

Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has died at age 99

LONDON (AP) - Buckingham Palace says Prince Philip, the irascible and tough-minded husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has died.

He spent more than seven decades supporting his wife in a role that both defined and constricted his life.

His life spanned nearly a century of European history, starting with his birth as a member of the Greek royal family and ending as Britain’s longest-serving consort during a turbulent reign in which the thousand-year-old monarchy was forced to reinvent itself for the 21st century.

He was known for his occasionally deeply offensive remarks - and for gamely fulfilling more than 20,000 royal engagements to boost British interests at home and abroad.
