That's a lovely story about Philip's childhood!
Thank you Lady Mellie!  Star

I can't believe that sweet boy is now gone.
I'm always thinking of that, when someone dies and later on I see childhood's pics. It's very strange feeling.

that is right - second cousins, both great grandsons of George I of Greece - they were also  both descended from Queen Victoria  (? 3rd cousins)

Greek first cousins once removed --Philip and Michael's mother were first cousins. 

Victoria > Victoria > Sophie > Helen > Michael
Victoria > Alice > Victoria > Alice > Philip

George I > Constantine > Helen > Michael
George I > Andrew > Philip

There are many vids paying tribute to PP on The Royal Family Channel on YouTube, the reactions of his children are posted in good quality videos.

I have no idea how to post photos but my favorite picture is the one of him in a greek costume. I think it has a name but it definitely has a significance because the guards at the tomb of the unknown soldier in front of the old palace in Athens wear it.

That's the one thank you Lady L. He is so stoic and regal here. A kid in a costume for a country he would never see again (except for his WWII battle near Crete) but somehow knew to step into the importance of the outfit.

Prince Philip will be missed. Princes Henrik, Claus, and Bernhard are throwing him a big party right now.
I like to imagine that he has been greeted by king Mihai of Romania  Smiley Both were born in 1921 and were related (2nd cousins if I'm not wrong).

Here in Romania :
with George II of Romania.

Other pictures (you have to scroll a little) :
https://www.romaniaregala...-familie-romano-britanic/

And guess where did Mihai meet his wife? In London, the wedding of Elizabeth and Philip.

Wonderful photos.  I had seen the one of the boys on horseback but not the others.

Is there a good link or thread in this forum or article to help untangle his royal relatives/connections and explain what it means to be a prince of Greece and Denmark and if the Danes today are princes of Greece, etc? 

I found the pictures and story of him and Mihai so intriguing!

it's wiki but it's a start: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_royal_family : As male-line descendants of King Christian IX of Denmark, members of the dynasty bear the title of Prince or Princess of Denmark and thus are traditionally referred to as "Princes" or "Princesses of Greece and Denmark".

But no, it doesn't work the other way - so Fred and Jokke are not "of Greece and Denmark", only Denmark.

The current Greek royal family descends from a second son of King Christian XI of Denmark, born Prince Vilhelm of Denmark, he changed his name and became King George of Greece. This is where most of the connections come from--among George's siblings were Queen Alexandra of the UK, Empress Maria Feodorovna of Russia and of course his older brother Frederick VIII of Denmark. George chose to remain a Danish prince when he accepted the throne of Greece, however, so his descendants are entitled to call themselves Princes and Princesses of both Greece and of Denmark.

I'm not sure why Haakon VII decided to drop the Danish titles when he became king, while the Greeks kept theirs though.

I guess, because Norway had already been part of Denmark once and wasn't an independent country. Therefore he dropped his titles.

I had a thought:

When The Queen Mother died her grandsons all stood vigil for an hour around her coffin while it was lying in state.

Now I know Philip isn't lying in state - at least not for the public to pay their respects but I wonder whether his children and grandsons may not still have the chance to do that? They wouldn't need to get more than 2 metres to each other and could wear masks but would it be possible under the UK's covid rules???
