Two new exhibitions commemorating the life of the late Prince Philip will take place this summer in Windsor and in Edinburgh. Prince Philip: A Celebration will include displays on the duke’s early life and naval career, his role as consort and his support for the Queen at home and across the world.
Special displays will go on show at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, in Edinburgh, and at Windsor Castle.
The two exhibitions will chart significant events and achievements in the Duke’s long life through a total of more than 150 objects, the Royal Collection Trust announced.
The displays will also focus on the duke’s wide-ranging patronages and associations, including sport, science and industry, conservation and the environment, art and collecting, and encouraging younger generations.
During his life, Prince Philip completed more than 22,000 solo engagements and 5,493 speeches since his wife ascended to the throne in 1952.
Highlights at Windsor will include the Coronation Robe and Coronet worn by Philip during the Queen’s Coronation, as well as his Chair of Estate which is usually located in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace.
It will also contain gifts presented to the Duke during state visits, overseas tours and official engagements.
According to the Royal Collections Trust, this will include a First Nations feather headdress he was given in Canada in 1973 and a wine cooler in the shape of a giant grasshopper presented by President Pompidou of France in 1972.
Prince Philip died on April 9 at Windsor Castle after months of ill health.
He died two months before what would have been his 100th birthday.
He was the longest-serving consort to a monarch in history, having been by the Queen’s side for more than 70 years.
His funeral, which could only be attended by 30 Royal Family members and friends, took place at St George’s Chapel in Windsor a week later.
The event was watched by more than 13 million viewers in the UK.
