Queen Elizabeth II commemorated her late husband, Prince Philip, on what would have been his 100th birthday by planting a newly bred rose in his honor. .

The queen watched the Duke of Edinburgh Rose planted in the Windsor Castle gardens last week to commemorate Philip’s centenary Thursday.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II receives a Duke of Edinburgh rose, given to her by Keith Weed, President of the Royal Horticultural Society, at Windsor Castle, England, Wednesday June 9, 2021.

The newly bred deep pink commemorative rose has officially been named in memory of the late Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh.

A royalty from the sale of each rose will go to The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Living Legacy Fund to support young people taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

Although she remained in respectfully good spirits at the event, the past few months have clearly been a trying time for both the queen and the royal family.

Although the queen is known for not showing too much emotion in public, a chance photo snapped by the Royal Central caught the queen in the back of her black Bentley on her way out of the service calmly wiping away a tear after saying goodbye to her husband of 73 years. .

Prince Philip, the irascible and tough-minded husband of Queen Elizabeth II who spent more than seven decades supporting his wife in a role that both defined and constricted his life, has died, Buckingham Palace said Friday.

While the queen is commemorating her late husband, another member of the royal family, Prince Edward, noted that Philip would likely not have been too thrilled with ceremonies surrounding his 100th birthday were he still alive to see it. .

In an interview with the BBC that was broadcast Thursday, the 57-year-old Prince Edward said the royal family would have "loved" the chance for Philip to be able to experience his centenary, even if his late father would have balked at "all the fuss and bother."
