Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and husband to Britain's Queen Elizabeth the II, died on Friday morning at age 99, according to an announcement from Buckingham Palace.

Philip had been most recently hospitalized on February 17, with the palace confirming that he was being treated for an infection. He was discharged in mid-March.

Philip was the longest-serving British consort, marrying then-Princess Elizabeth in 1947.

He is survived by the queen and his four children — Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward — in addition to eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
