The Duke of Edinburgh
Farewell, Prince Philip
Prince Philip, who has died aged 99, lived the most “extraordinary life”, says the BBC’s Jonny Dymond. The “first gentleman in the land”, grandson of the king of Greece, was born “on a kitchen table” in Corfu — the family preferred a home birth. Aged one, the little prince was smuggled out of Greece in a fruit crate when a coup in 1922 nearly put his father, Prince Andrew, on the chopping block.
