Who is Duke of Edinburgh now Prince Philip is dead?
The title of Duke of Edinburgh will be inherited by the youngest son of Philip and the Queen, which is Prince Edward.
The current Duke of Edinburgh is Charles, Prince of Wales, and he inherited the title when Philip died on April 9 2021.
But because Charles will ascend the throne and become King of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth he won’t remain the Duke, and so it’ll go to his brother Edward.
This has been place since 1999, with approval from Her Majesty The Queen.
Prince Edward already oversees the Duke of Edinburgh award which was originally set up by Philip to encourage physical education in young people.
Before being re-created by King George VI, the title of the Duke of Edinburgh was held by Alfred, Hereditary Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, the son of Prince Alfred and grandson of Queen Victoria.
The Queen’s husband’s funeral was attended by only 30 people in line with Covid measures, with guests including his beloved children, grandchildren and friends.
Prince Philip’s casket was covered with his personal standard along with his sword, naval cap and wreath of flowers, and he was placed in a Land Rover hearse, which he spent 16 years adapting, for his final journey.
And according to repots, the idea behind the hearse actually started out as a joke, with Philip telling the Queen that, if he died, she should “stick me in the back of a Land Rover and drive me to Windsor”.
However, this then turned into a reality and the late Duke designed the Land Rover.
Speaking to the Mirror, the chief engineer, Steve Routlec, said: “The Duke’s Land Rover had been in there for a decade, being regularly serviced and looked after for when it might be needed.”
Very few people knew about the Land Rover, aside from the 30 engineers who had worked on it.
