His Royal Highness Prince Philip, 99, passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.

An announcement about the death of Queen Elizabeth II's husband and her devoted companion for 73 years was made on the Royal Family's social media accounts as well as the Royal Family's official website. According to the tradition, an official notice of his death was posted on the railings of Buckingham Palace. However, it was removed shortly afterwards to avoid too many people gathering at the spot. Still, lots of public mourners head to Windsor Castle to put tribute notes and leave flowers all across the territory.
