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

Buckingham Palace said: “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.”

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he “inspired the lives of countless young people”.

Speaking at Downing Street, the prime minister added: “He helped to steer the Royal Family and the monarchy so that it remains an institution indisputably vital to the balance and happiness of our national life.”

The Queen referred to his husband as “my strength and stay.” He was hospitalized in February after “feeling unwell,” and was treated for an infection and a preexisting heart condition, Buckingham Palace said. He was released a month later after undergoing a heart procedure.

Following the passing away of the Duke of Edinburg, the United Kingdom ushers into a period of national mourning under a long-standing plan known as “Operation Forth Bridge”.
