Princess Anne Speaks Out on What Would Have Been Prince Philip's 100th Birthday

https://people.com/royals...ce-philip-100th-birthday/

Quote
Princess Anne is stoically honoring her late father on what should have been a day of celebration.

Just two months since Prince Philip's death at age 99 on April 9, Anne discussed his legacy and his unique personality with ITV, in an interview that was released on Thursday, the day that would have been his 100th birthday.

"We all have to move on," Anne said, "but it's important to remember."

Anne's comments came as she presented The Royal Academy of Engineering special centenary award of The Prince Philip Medal - long planned to mark the Duke of Edinburgh's milestone birthday - to Virginia-based Dr. Gladys West.

As the first woman to receive the medal in its 30-year history, Dr. West was honored for her work modelling the earth's surface, which led to the development of GPS satellite positioning. Princess Anne noted her father would have found this work "particularly relevant" given his background as a Naval officer and navigator.

"There were not many people who understood just how broad his interests were and how supportive he was to an astonishingly wide range of organisations," she said in her interview. "He'd seen a lot of [life experience] across a really wide area of both work and industry and in academia."

She added, "He probably asked more questions than he gave opinions. He was always good at that."

The princess, 70, also fondly looked back on her father's famous penchant for grilling and his ingenuity in equipping the family Land Rover with a trailer "designed specifically for that role. It was actually made by the engineer at Sandringham, but it was designed entirely for that purpose [of grilling] and everything had a place and you needed to know where that was…and then it worked, really well!"

Nearly two months after Prince Philip's funeral on April 17, Anne was just one of many royal family members who shared tributes to the Mountbatten-Windsor patriarch, including Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who shared a beaming photo of the Duke Edinburgh.

Prince William and  Kate Middleton shared a new photo of Queen Elizabeth in the gardens of Windsor Castle, receiving a pink rose that was specially created to mark the Duke of Edinburgh's centenary. 

As for the 95-year-old Queen herself, she has planned to spend Thursday in private remembrance of her late husband who, according to her former press secretary Charles Anson, "took very seriously his role as a support for the Queen as monarch."

Queen Elizabeth Receives Special Rose to Mark Late Husband Prince Philip's 100th Birthday

https://people.com/royals...ince-philip-100-birthday/

Quote
Queen Elizabeth is remembering her beloved late husband Prince Philip on the eve of what would have been his 100th birthday.

The monarch, 95, received a unique, deep pink rose, that was specially created to mark the Duke of Edinburgh's centenary. And it has been planted in an area of the gardens at Windsor Castle that Philip helped transform.

Philip, who died on April 9, would have turned 100 on Thursday, June 10th - a day the Queen will be spending "privately," a palace source says.

The rose was presented to the Queen last week by the President of the Royal Horticultural Society, Keith Weed. Upon receiving the flower, the monarch said it "looked lovely." It has since been given a place in the mixed rose border of the East Terrace Garden at Windsor Castle. Philip played a key role in the layout of the garden, restructuring the flowerbeds and commissioning a bronze lotus fountain which features at its center, the palace says.

"Whilst being very poignant, it was also a delight to give Her Majesty The Queen, Patron of the Royal Horticultural Society, the Duke of Edinburgh Rose to mark what would have been HRH The Duke of Edinburgh's 100th birthday and to remember his remarkable life," Weed said in a statement. "The Duke's devotion to raising public awareness of the importance of conserving the natural world leaves a lasting legacy."

A royalty from the sale of each rose will go to The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Living Legacy Fund, which aims to help more young people take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

 . . .

Later this month, Philip will be celebrated in a major exhibition at Windosr Castle. The robe he wore to his wife's Coronation in 1953, some of the official gifts he was given during his long life as consort to the Queen and memorabilia from his days serving as a naval officer will be on display.

She is looking good, - I did not see a brooch on that dress, which is almost unheard of!

I can make out a hint of a brooch in some photos, possibly something delicate and floral - yellow gold with a pearl or diamond

There's a hint of a brooch there... the Botswana one, maybe?

Great catch, Future Crayon!  Enjoy your biscuit 🍪

Such a beautiful, delicate brooch - she does have a collection!  Somewhere, there should be an exhibit of her brooch collection, maybe as a memorial display once she has passed.  She will be long remembered for her love of those brooches. 💕
