Will Prince Philip get a letter from the queen when he turns 100?

WHEN a person turns 100, they receive a letter from Her Majesty The Queen.

Prince Philip will reach that milestone too in 2021. Will he receive a letter? We take a look.

Will Prince Philip get a letter from the queen when he turns 100?

British citizens turning 100 can receive a special letter from Queen Elizabeth II to mark the milestone.

They can also apply to get a free birthday message for their 105th birthday and every birthday after 105.

Brits can also get an anniversary message from the Queen to commemorate their 60th, 65th, 70th or more than 70th anniversary.

It is not clear whether Prince Philip will receive an official letter for his 100th birthday.

According to the Express, because the Duke is likely to receive a birthday card and letter from his wife the Queen anyway, he probably will not get the official honour too.

But because Prince Philip is known for his witty remarks, he might actually apply to receive an official birthday card from the Queen too.

When does Prince Philip turn 100?

Prince Philip will turn 100 on June 10, 2021. He was born in 1921 in Greece.

He will become the first male member of the Royal Family to turn 100 and the first royal consort to do so.

It is still not confirmed what kind of celebrations will be possible due to coronavirus restrictions, but Prince Philip is said to be a "rather reluctant celebrant".

A palace aide told The Telegraph that the Duke of Edinburgh "doesn't want a fuss" for his 100th birthday.

In June 2020, when Prince Philip turned 99, the Palace released a rare new photograph of him and the Queen standing next to each other at Windsor Castle.

During an interview when he was 80, the Duke said he could not imagine "anything worse" than turning 100.

He said: "I can't imagine anything worse. Bits of me are falling off already."
