Prince Philip has earned the affection of generations here in the United Kingdom, across the Commonwealth and around the world.  

He was the longest serving consort in history. One of the last surviving people in this country to have served in the Second World War at Cape Matapan where he was mentioned in dispatches for bravery and the invasion of Sicily. Where he saved his ship by his quick thinking. 

And from that conflict he took an ethic of service that he applied throughout the unprecedented changes of the post-war era. 

Like the expert carriage driver that he was, 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. 

Prince Philips was born on June 10,1921 in Corfu, Greece.
