How old is Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh?
The husband of Elizabeth II is a whopping 96-years-old, and age anyone should be proud of.

The royal, a member of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, married the Queen in 20 November 1947.

The former military man was born into the Greek and Danish royal families.

He is the Lord High Admiral of the Royal Navy and has the highest rank in all three branches of the Canadian Armed Forces.

He is also a Knight Grand Cross (GCVO) of the Royal Victorian Order.

Prince Philip’s health was a cause of concern for some Britons with some wondered whether he would make it to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.

However, after a successful hip replacement the Duke of Edinburgh should be fighting fit for his grandson’s wedding.

There are certain conditions upon which the Duke of Edinburgh will be able to attend the royal wedding, it has been said.

The Queen’s consort and husband has sought medical advice for a hip problem, after it got it the way of one of his favourite pursuits: carriage driving.

“Confronted by the possibility that an untreated hip complaint could prevent him participating in his beloved sport of carriage driving, he has accepted medical advice,” Richard Kay wrote on MailOnline.

However, it is said that if Prince Philip is in a condition to attend the Windsor Horse show on May 9, he will most likely be fit to attend the wedding 10 days later.
