By Benjamin Flowers: The Guardian reports that Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh and husband of Queen Elizabeth II for 73 years, died today.
Buckingham Palace issued a statement on his death this morning that he died at the age of 99.
“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. Further announcements will made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss,” the statement said.
The Duke’s had reportedly been deteriorating for some time, leading to him stepping down from Royal engagements back in 2017. He celebrated his 99th birthday on November of 2020.
A period of mourning was also announced and flags on landmark buildings in Britain are now being flown at half mast.
The Queen is Belize’s Head of State under Belize’s Constitutional Monarchy system, with her official representative being the Governor General.
