Queen surprises with rose in honor of Prince Philip’s 100th birthday | Royals

The memorial flower is planted in the East Terrace Garden at Windsor Castle. It was a gift from the British Royal Horticultural Society, of which the Queen is patroness. Upon receiving the rose, the 95-year-old British monarch appeared outside the palace in a white vest and sunglasses. Elizabeth called the memorial flower “beautiful” and the gift from the association “very nice.”

The Duke of Edinburgh rose has been on sale since Thursday. For every rose sold, a donation is made to the Duke of Edinburgh Award. This is a youth awards program from Prince Philip from 1956, for young people who have committed themselves in a special way to, among other things, their neighborhood or their work.

Charles and Camilla are also celebrating the centenary of Prince Philip’s birth today. “We commemorate the Duke of Edinburgh on the day he would have turned 100,” the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall wrote on social media.

They also share a photo of Prince Charles’ late father. The photo shows a smiling Prince Philip in his last years.
