A friend was saying to me yesterday how she wasn’t sad he died. He was 99 years old afterall. But I feel sorry for Elizabeth, she has lost her partner of a complete lifetime, a length very, very few will ever have the chance to experience or understand.
Prince Phillip was a man born into a Greek dynasty, at the time of the Spanish Flu, removed from his Kingdom, whisked away to France, Europe, to live and be educated during the Great Depression. Living in a family fractured by mental illness and a philandering father. A dedicated WW2 hero who had already met his beloved Lilibet when she was barely a teenager. And then he married the woman who would be Queen. What a love story. I feel sad for them.
