Prince Philip paid ultimate tribute by two grandchildren just weeks before his death

 

Prince Philip had two of his great-grandchildren named after him just weeks before his death in a touching tribute.

Royal cousins Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall both decided on the middle name Philip for their children born in February and March this year.

Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank had their first child on February 9, and called him August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

The couple said that they had chosen Philip in honour of the Duke of Edinburgh who had been admitted to hospital that week.

Eugenie wrote on Instagram : “On his grandfather’s birthday weekend, thinking of my grandfather, we are introducing our little boy.

“He is named after his great grandfathers and both of his great x5 grandfathers.”

Then in March, Zara gave birth to her third child at home with husband Mike Tindall at Gatcombe Park and he was called Lucas Philip Tindall.

He was named after the Duke of Edinburgh and Mike’s dad Philip Tindall.

Zara and Mike also have two other children – Mia Grace, aged seven and two-year-old Lena Elizabeth.

In total the Queen and Philip have ten great-grandchildren with another on the way with Meghan Markle pregnant and due to give birth this summer to her and Prince Harry’s second child.

Philip, who enjoyed a close relationship with Eugenie and Zara, passed away aged 99 just two months before his 100th birthday.

Buckingham Palace released a statement that read: “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.

The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.

Further announcements will be made in due course.”
