Prince Philip, 99, is due to mark his 100th birthday on June 10 this year. While the Duke of Edinburgh is not one to make a fuss, the extraordinary milestone is likely to be honoured by some kind of national celebration.
The Duke is the oldest male member of the Royal Family to have ever lived and made several public outings last year which showed him to still be in good shape.
Despite being well into his 90s, Philip managed to stand tall during an honorary military title handover ceremony at Windsor Castle last summer.
The Duke also managed to walk down the castle's steps completely unaided before greeting members of the Rifles regiment gathered there.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Since then the Duke has appeared in a new photo to mark his and the Queen's 73rd wedding anniversary in November.

Following his retirement from public life in 2017, the Duke made Wood Farm on the Sandringham Estate his main home.
However, during the pandemic, he has been reunited with the Queen and the couple have spent most of their time isolating together at Windsor Castle since last March.
