Prince Philip: An Appreciation

ICYMI:   all photos  Marlene A Eilers Koenig There will be many articles in the days to come examining the life of the late HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.  He was the longest ever consort of an English or British sovereign.  He was a descendant of Queen Victoria as is his widow -- I hate writing this word -- Queen Elizabeth II.   They were married for 73 years. In the 1980s and 1990s, I covered royal visits to the US for a British magazine, Berkswell's The Royal Year.  Prince Philip visited the US on numerous occasions and it was a delight to write about his visits -- and to take photos as well, although I did not have a fancy camera at that time. My mom thought he was so handsome when he was young.  She was right.  He was dishy. The late Duke of Edinburgh was aware of my research into the descendants of Queen Victoria, which led to three books, all titled Queen Victoria's Descendants.    His Private Secretary at the time was always able to get the answers to questions that I posed to the Prince.  The London bookstore Hatchards is one of my favorite places to visit in London.  The store manager spotted me during one visit.  He walked over to tell me that Prince Philip had recently ordered several copies of my book to give as gifts. Well, that made my day. In May 1991, Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.  I was at the White House for their arrival -- and yes this was the event of the Talking Hat.   I am short so I managed to get a photo of the Queen's face, and not merely her hat. An off-the-record press reception was held at a local hotel in Washington, D.C., hotel.  No photos, but one hoped one would get presented.   I was presented to the Queen first.  It's true. you do not remember what the conversation was about.  I did curtsey and she shook my hand. Several deep breaths followed. I turned my attention to finding Prince Philip.  My eyes scanned the room. It took only a few seconds to spot him   I made my way to where the Prince was chatting.  I was in the line - and then, there he was standing in front of me.   One of the British Embassy officials introduced me to HRH.  I curtseyed.  We chatted a bit and I said rather casually: "I correspond with your sister, Princess Sophie." Prince Philip responded:  "Yes, she warned me about you."  It was said with humor as he was familiar with my work.  He shook my hand before turning to the next person in line. A day or two later,  I received a letter from Princess Sophie, which was written on Windsor Castle stationary.  I had written to her some weeks earlier with a few questions and the news that I would be covering the state visit and received invitations to the press reception and the Garden Party at the British Embassy (where I ran into a friend, Crown Prince Alexander, and his wife, Crown Princess Katherine.  I was standing next to the Crown Prince and Crown Princess when the Queen walked by. She stopped immediately to greet her godson (they kissed each other on the cheek) and, much to my delight, the Crown Prince called the Queen  'Lilibet'. Princess Sophie answered my questions and added that she had told the Queen and Prince Philip that I would be at the reception. So Philip did know who I was.  Nearly 30 years later,  the meeting between HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh still brings a smile to my face.

Who succeeds as Duke of Edinburgh

ICYMI: Embed from Getty Images   and it is not the HRH The Earl of Wessex.  This is made clear in King George VI's Letters Patent.  The peerage was created for Philip and "the heirs male of his body lawfully begotten." The Prince of Wales has succeeded his father as the Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich.  The Heir Apparent to this dukedom is HRH The Duke of Cambridge.  The succession for the dukedom is as follows: HRH The Duke of Cambridge, HRH Prince George of Cambridge, HRH Prince Louis of Cambridge, HRH The Duke of Sussex,  Archie Mountbatten-Windsor,  HRH The Duke of York, HRH The Earl of Wessex and Viscount Severn. Here is the announcement about Edward's titles.  Please note the use of the word given and "eventually reverts to the Crown." Philip's titles have not reverted to the Crown because he has male heirs.  The peerages will revert to the Crown when Charles becomes King.   Once Charles is king, he will create a new dukedom of Edinburgh for his youngest brother. The Palace has reiterated this statement on numerous occasions since June 1999.   Today, the College of Arms statement on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh included this paragraph: "The Titles of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh The Duke of Edinburgh was granted the style and title of Royal Highness on 19 November 1947; on the next day, 20 November, he was created Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich, of Greenwich in the County of London. These peerages are hereditary and on the death of His Royal Highness have passed to his eldest son, HRH The Prince of Wales. In the event of the Prince of Wales or any subsequent holder of these titles succeeding to the Crown, these titles and all others held will merge with the Crown."  I highlighted the most important sentence.

Here is the announcement about Edward's titles.  Please note the use of the word given and "eventually reverts to the Crown." Philip's titles have not reverted to the Crown because he has male heirs.  The peerages will revert to the Crown when Charles becomes King.   Once Charles is king, he will create a new dukedom of Edinburgh for his youngest brother. The Palace has reiterated this statement on numerous occasions since June 1999.   Today, the College of Arms statement on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh included this paragraph: "The Titles of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh The Duke of Edinburgh was granted the style and title of Royal Highness on 19 November 1947; on the next day, 20 November, he was created Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich, of Greenwich in the County of London. These peerages are hereditary and on the death of His Royal Highness have passed to his eldest son, HRH The Prince of Wales. In the event of the Prince of Wales or any subsequent holder of these titles succeeding to the Crown, these titles and all others held will merge with the Crown."  I highlighted the most important sentence.
