Back on Feb. 16, Prince Philip was admitted to the hospital and later underwent a procedure for a pre-existing heart condition. Then on March 16, he was released to go home to Windsor Castle, where he was staying during England’s COVID-19 lockdown.
Prince Philip had been married to Queen Elizabeth since 1947, almost 75 years. After over seven decades of public support for the Queen, he retired from his official royal duties back in 2017 with the “full support” of his wife, according to Buckingham Palace.
