Queen Elizabeth will celebrate the 100th birthday of her late husband Prince Philip “in private”, says the source from the palace



Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, Prince Philip, would celebrate his 100th birthday on Thursday.

The Duke of Edinburgh, who spent more than seven decades in support of his wife, died on April 9 at the age of 99.

On Thursday, a source from Buckingham Palace told People magazine that the ruling monarch, who was staying at Windsor Castle amid a coronavirus pandemic, would spend the gloomy day “alone”.

The outlet shared that the 95-year-old is “quietly coping” with the loss of her beloved husband at the age of 73.

The couple married in 1947 and remained together until his death. The Queen described Philip, who became Britain̵

7;s longest-serving wife, as her “strength and stay”.

“There were some things they had to deal with that were difficult, but it was a long marriage with a lot of happiness,” Charles Anson, the queen’s former spokeswoman, told the paper. “He took very seriously his role of supporting the queen as monarch.”

Anson insisted that Elizabeth would not be alone, as she remembered Philip behind the palace gates.

“She has a huge amount of family support for herself and will be comforted by the huge support from around the world,” he said.

Buckingham Palace did not immediately respond to Fox News’s request for comment.

Elizabeth celebrated Philip’s 100th birthday by planting a newly grown rose named after him.

She was depicted smiling as she received the small rose bush, wrapped in brown paper and twine, by the president of the Royal Horticultural Society.

The rose, which is deep pink and colored with white lines, was grown shortly after Philip’s death on April 9 at Windsor Castle.

For each rose sold, Harkness Roses will donate £ 2.50 ($ 3.50) to a fund to help another million young people from all walks of life take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, a popular youth rewards program created by Philip in 1956.

The couple’s youngest child, Prince Edward, told the BBC that the royal family would “like” the chance for Philip to live to his centenary, even if his late father agreed to “all the fuss and worries”.

“I don’t think he was really looking forward to the centenary, even if we were,” the 57-year-old said. “[But] everyone will have their own memories. He was such a man, bigger than life. Once met, never forgotten. “

Philip’s funeral took place just over a week after his death. Attendees at St. George’s Chapel were limited to just 30 people as a result of coronavirus restrictions at the time. Most touchingly, Elizabeth sat alone on one side of the chapel.

Reflecting on his father’s funeral in the wake of the pandemic, Edward said it was an “unusual” but “strange” day.

The couple’s eldest son, Prince Charles, honored his late father on Thursday with a social media post on his Instagram account, which he shared with his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

It shows a young Charles holding his father’s hand, while Philip, dressed in an elegant double-breasted suit and sunglasses, greets him after returning home from a trip to Malta in 1951.

“Remembering the Duke of Edinburgh, what would be his 100th birthday,” the publication said.

Camilla, who opened the exhibition of British Flower Week during a visit to the Garden Museum, also received a bouquet containing rosemary – a memorial in honor of Philip.
