Prince Philip’s cause of death has been confirmed as “old age” on his death certificate, according to reports.
The Telegraph reports that the occupation of the Duke of Edinburgh has been listed as the Queen’s consort.
The head of the royal medical house, Sir Huw Thomas, has confirmed the cause of death.
A statement from Buckingham Place confirmed the Duke’s death at the age of 99 on Friday April 9.
A statement on behalf of the Queen read: “It is with deep sadness that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
“Her Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.
“The Royal Family join people around the world in mourning their loss.”
His full name is listed as “His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh formerly known as Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark formerly known as Philip Mountbatten”, on the death certificate.
Two professions are listed, the first being a naval officer, while the second is “the husband of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Sovereign”.
Last month, the Queen and her family gathered to bid farewell to the Duke of Edinburgh, as the rest of the world watched.
St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle was decorated with Philip’s badge reflecting his many roles in public life and his dealings with many nations, and his coffin was brought there in a custom Land Rover that he assisted to design.
The Queen, married to Philip for 73 years, wore a face mask as she led 30 people in mourning within the limits required by coronavirus laws.
The Duke of Edinburgh was the longest-serving husband in British history after marrying Queen Elizabeth II in July 1947.
