He was born on June 10, 1921, in our home on the island of Corbo, the only son of Prince Andrew (Andreas) and Greek Princess Alice, Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark. Uncle Philip, as we call him, was a very dear member of the extended Greek family, and certainly a strong bond with us in Great Britain, where my brother Philip was born. I got his name from my parents.
When I think of his life, I am very proud of him: the courage he showed in World War II and the way he overcame the challenges of deportation in his early life. He was the most notable servant of the Sovereign and the United Kingdom of all ranks, the house he adopted and the Commonwealth.
He was armed with determination, compassion, vision, and unshakable loyalty at the center of his ability to support the Queen in her united stability in the midst of changing waves of the last century and beyond.
At the coronation he swore falsely to his wife that he would undoubtedly perform it. He will be remembered by more than 700 organizations as the President or Patron and the Edinburgh Duke Award, which has attracted 8 million young people since 1956.
He enjoyed his relationship with the Armed Forces and the lives of the men and women who served them. Prince Philip does not want to rely on things: he is very strong and energetic.
It is said that the life of the dead goes into the memory of the living, which will be true in the memories of our time with him – peace, stories, unlimited interests – always admirable. Today our thoughts and prayers are with Queen Elizabeth II and her own family, for whom it is very difficult to bear the feeling of loss. I know that the joy of reflecting on one’s extraordinary life can be a source of immense comfort and pride.
