  Prince Philip Was Much More Than the Rigid Royal Enforcer The dysfunction at the heart of the British royal family has often been ascribed to the outsized role of its domineering patriarch, Prince Philip, who has died at age 99. At moments he was a tyrannical father and vengeful ex-father-in-law, whose child rearing was condemned by his own son. Philip rarely showed what might be called a soft side, at least in public—but he was absolutely dedicated to his wife in supporting her role as queen.

On its official Twitter feed, the royal family put up a tribute paid by the Queen to her husband on their 50th wedding anniversary in 1997.

"He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know," she said.

  The man who wouldn't be king They met as children, at his cousin's wedding. Philip and Elizabeth's paths would eventually cross again, but in the years before they became an iconic couple, the blue-eyed, ash-blond boy earned a reputation as a ladies' man and distinguished naval officer.The groom barely stole a glance as they walked up the aisle.

He was also due to deliver a speech, via video, at the annual film award ceremony on Sunday night, celebrating the resilience of the film industry over the past year.

His grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh was BAFTA's first president.

Buckingham Palace is expected to announce details of the funeral later on Saturday (local time).

It is likely to be a small, private affair, stripped of the grandeur of traditional royal occasions by COVID-19 restrictions and by the prince's own dislike of people making a fuss.
