“I am writing, with great respect, from Brazil to offer my condolences on the death of His Royal Highness Prince Felipe. I do so as a Brazilian citizen who works to help open up our country, on an alternative path that can win much support from the Brazilian people.”
According to the politician, the prince has been admired by many in Brazil for his environmental commitment. “As custodians of the largest reserves of freshwater and biodiversity on Earth, inside and outside the world’s largest tropical forest, we in Brazil are determined to move in the direction of Prince Philip’s hopes.”
Prince Philip dies
Prince Philip died today at the age of 99, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, at the age of 73. The announcement was made through the social networks of the British family.
“It is with great sadness that Her Majesty the Queen announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Her Royal Highness passed away this morning peacefully in Windsor Castle,” the royal account said.
Buckingham Palace has not announced the cause of death, and there is still no information on the funeral. Politicians mourned the loss of the Queen and praised Prince Philip.
Philip was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital on February 16th in London. A few days later, the crown said it was treating an infection.
The Duke of Edinburgh – one of Philip’s nicknames – came to have a heart operation at another hospital, St. Bartholomew, on March 5. A spokesman for the royal family said the surgery had been successful.
He was discharged from hospital on March 16, after nearly a month in hospital.
It wasn’t a healthy procedure by Prince Charles’ father and grandfather Harry and William: he underwent emergency surgery in 2011 to open one of his arteries. Philip has already received the first dose of the vaccine against COVID-19, and so has the woman, Queen Elizabeth II.
The family removed the official website from the air and paid respect to fellow Elizabeth 2ª, who will turn 100 in June.
