Tragic Details About Prince Philip Revealed
The longtime consort to Queen Elizabeth II lived a life of privilege and luxury, but he also had a life beset with struggles, sadness, heartbreak, and trauma. He died on April 9, 2021, at home in Windsor Castle. Here are the tragic details of Prince Philip. In 1947, and at the age of 26, Prince Philip married into the royal family of the United Kingdom. In adherence to old-school traditions amongst the powerful ruling families of Europe, no commoner could marry the future queen of the British realm, and Philip was of suitable lineage and noble birth. Born in 1921, Philip hailed from the royal families of both Greece and Denmark, his birth taking place on the Greek island of Corfu. But in September 1922, scarcely a year after he'd celebrated his first birthday, Philip and his family had to leave Greece, and urgently. After a major military defeat, Philip's uncle, King Constantine of Greece, abdicated the throne. Philip's father, Prince Andrew, who served in Greece's military under Constantine was accused of treason, and was banished from Greece. The family fled to France via a British naval ship, where baby Philip was reportedly safely smuggled in a fruit crate, according to The Independent.
