RiP HRH Philip !

I blame it on the stress caused by Harry and drippy!

Will harry and drippy need to self isolate when they return is the big question ?

99 is a fine old age, but a shame to miss the letter from his wife by only a couple of months.

As you say, will be interesting to see if Miss Markle is brave enough to show her face to the Queen after all the shitshow she has caused.
I expect Harry to crawl home to comfort Granny, but who cares really.....He made his bed.

Where is a Wiz when he can be useful? As I understand Philip was a Greek. Zorbo or Leonidas?

Anyways I respect what he did and even stood for in these times.

I hope in the next life he is also able to equal his accomplishments that he did in this one.

Philip's got Russian in him. Future Kings and Queens of England will have Russian in them.

Over 220 generals and admirals say we are in a fight for our survival like no other time since 1776. If you want to stop the war in Ukraine, fix elections, stop medical tyranny and forced vaccinations, lower inflation and make America and the world a better place, get Trump back into power. The Democrats and Republicans have shown they can't do the job. They are good at robbing us and getting people killed in non stop wars.

What I read is that he was a royal through Greek and Danish lines.

6 degrees of separation - go back far enough and you're probably related to Cleopatra.
He was a royal through his Greek and Danish lines but at that time, pretty much all the royals across Europe were interbred. And, yes, that included the Russian royal family.

Queen Elizabeth and prince Philip are, in fact, distantly related: https://www.insider.com/how-were-prince-philip-and-queen-related-cousins-2021-4

If you count that every person has 2 parents , which have 4 grandparents, which have 8 great-grandparents andson, in only 33 generations will you surpass the worlds population with 8 billion ancestral people.

Lets be generous and say a generation spans 30 years, then everyone currently alive is related to :

In the fSU I heard it was Genghis Khan instead of good old William. About ten years ago I recall reading an article that there was some truth to this.
