Racist, Conservationist, Funny & Grumpy: Prince Philip's Complicated Legacy

On Friday 9th April 2021 Prince Philip died at the age of 99, bringing an end to his 73-year marriage to Queen Elizabeth II.

While much of the world is in mourning, there can be no doubt the Duke of Edinburgh remains as controversial in death as he was in life, leaving behind a complicated legacy.

The Quicky speaks to a Royal biographer to look back on the highs and lows of nearly a century spent in the shadow of the Crown, and whether his death could help to repair ongoing rifts in the Royal family.
