Buckingham Palace has announced the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, at the age of 99.

Prince Philip visited the island several times with Her Majesty The Queen, Lord of Mann. We have trawled the archives to find these pics of the Duke.

A statement from Buckingham Palace said: ‘It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.’

Prince Philip was born on the Greek island of Corfu on 10 June 1921.  His father was Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark, a younger son of King George I of the Hellenes.  His mother, Princess Alice, was a daughter of Lord Louis Mountbatten and a great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

Lieutenant Governor Sir Richard Gozeny has extended the condolences of our island to Buckingham Palace.
