Ok, I’m just going to admit this right off the bat….I don’t know much about the Royals, mainly because I don’t care much about the Royals.
So I honestly had no clue that “Prince Phillip” was married to Queen Elizabeth.
There you go!
But apparently he was, until this morning when he died at age 99.

Below is the statement from the palace:
“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.
“The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”
Our deepest sympathies and prayers to Her Majesty The Queen, the Royal Family and all the people of our great ally the United Kingdom. God bless Prince Philip, a man of dignity and devotion to family and country. https://t.co/2RPrwmBYAx

According to Fox News, George W. Bush also rushed to give his thoughts:
Former President George W. Bush said the late Prince Philip “brought boundless strength and support” to Queen Elizabeth II, offering condolences to the Royal Family just after learning of the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh.
“Laura and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh,” Bush said in a statement Friday morning. “Throughout his long and remarkable life, he devoted himself to worthy causes and to others.”
Bush said Prince Philip “represented the United Kingdom with dignity and brought boundless strength and support to the sovereign.”
“Laura and I are fortunate to have enjoyed the charm and wit of his company, and we know how much he will be missed,” the former president continued.
“We join those around the world offering heartfelt condolences to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the entire Royal Family,” he said.
Prince Philip passed away on Friday at Windsor Castle. He was 99.
The royal family confirmed the Duke of Edinburgh’s death Friday in a statement.
“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,” the statement reads.
An announcement about Philip’s death was placed on the gates of Buckingham Palace on Friday.
During England’s coronavirus lockdown, he had been staying at Windsor Castle, west of London, with the queen, 94.
On Feb. 16, Philip was admitted to a London hospital after feeling unwell. On March 3, he underwent a procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital before being transferred back to King Edward VII hospital on March 5 and ultimately released home on March 16.
Something tells me George H.W. Bush (Bush-41) and Prince Phillip may now be reunited.
Read into that whatever you will.
I am treating this story with respect and dignity, but some of you on Twitter have been having yourselves QUITE a morning.
Let’s take a look at a few:

The existence of Prince Philip was the most compelling evidence that the parasitic colonialists in the British royal family really are lizard people pic.twitter.com/J6WLLnQaKM
