Here are 10 photos from the life and times of the Duke of Edinburgh.
The dashing Prince Philip of Greece married the young Princess Elizabeth and went on to serve for decades as consort to the Queen.
Central to royal life since the 1940s, he was a father, a sportsman, a royal companion, and a key public figure.
The duke dedicated himself to supporting the Queen, on official engagements, at grand state events, foreign tours, and in all aspects of her reign and life – and was always ready to lend a hand.
He was father to the Prince of Wales, the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex.
Philip was a skilled polo player for many years, as well as an accomplished sailor, pilot, and carriage driver.
Sometimes the countless royal duties took their toll. Philip was known to occasionally “rest his eyes” while on official engagements.
