The cause of death of the late husband of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, has been confirmed.
According to The Telegraph, the head of the royal medical household and the physician to the Queen, Sir Huw Thomas, in his death certificate disclosed that Prince Philip died due to ‘old age.
According to the report, the description ‘old age’ is accepted if the patient is over 80 and if the doctor has personally cared for the patient for a long period, observing a gradual decline.
It was gathered that there was no other identifiable disease or injury that contributed to the death, including the heart condition that forced him to undergo a surgical procedure just weeks before he died.
Recall that the Duke of Edinburgh died at the age of 99 on Friday.
Prince Philip died a month after he has successful surgery for a pre-existing heart condition at St Bartholomew’s hospital and was discharged.
