Prince Philip has stayed at Windsor Castle together with the Queen during the coronavirus lockdown. It is the first public photo of the Duke since he was seen leaving hospital in London on 24 December last year.

The Queen is wearing an Angela Kelly floral dress. In addition, the Queen is wearing a heart-shaped 18.8 carat diamond brooch called Cullinan V, which she has worn many times, including for her granddaughter Princess Eugenie's wedding and London Fashion Week.

  1. Happy birthday, Your Royal Highness. Great man from the "old school". He has always done a great job - during the war and in peace he dignifiedly represented your country - the United Kingdom. I appreciate his humor, sarcasm, directness and responsibility.
    He reminds me so much of my grandfather (who also fought in World War II).
    Good for him not to participate in public life nowadays. I can imagine what he would say about vandalism in the current protests. Nowadays - in times of "political correctness" - activists would "crucify" him. Greetings from Slovakia

    1. OOH! to think that they look their age you must be a very bouncy spring chicken yourself. They look and behave years younger. Have you ever heard of a 94 year old lady who still rides a horse before. They look elderly yes but nowhere near 94 and 99. The queen especially looks much younger to me.

  5. A very Happy Birthday your Royal Highness.
    Fashion wise, they both present an impressive image for their age.
    Perfectly dressed.
    A history note: if you are interested and if you have the time, you may find the biography of Prince Philip's mother and father an interesting read.
    Or you can pick up quite a bit of information via "Wikipedia".
    Youngest child of 5 with four elder sisters. A father who died in Monaco and who stirred up a lot of gossip re his bisexuality. His mother, a remarkable woman, who often got landed with the title "très bohème".
