Prince Philip, whom the Queen was married to for 73 years, would have turned 100 on Saturday 10 June.Royal expert Kate Nicholl told OK! earlier this year that some of her closest confidantes were by her side on the day.She said: "The family will rally round the Queen on Philip's birthday.
"Those she's closest to, such as Prince Edward, his wife Sophie Wessex and Prince Andrew will move their schedules around to make sure they can spend the day with her."The monarch marked Prince Philip's 100th birthday by planting a commemorative rose in his name at Windsor Castle.
Queen Elizabeth was gifted the shrub from the President of the Royal Horticultural Society, Keith Weed, who told the Queen: "It’s a rose named the Duke of Edinburgh Rose to mark his centenary and it’s a commemorative rose for all the marvellous things that he did over his lifetime and for everyone to remember so much that he did." headtopics.com
