The poem read in part: “On such an occasion it is presumptuous to praise one man, for a whole generation – that crew whose survival was always the stuff of a little miracle, who came ashore in orange crates, waged ingenious wars, feigned triumphs at sea with flaming decoys and sidestepped torpedoes.

“True husbands, they rolled out their plans over pool tables and hoods, regrouped at breakfast. What their secrets were was everyone’s bet and nobody’s business. Great-grandfathers from birth, over time they became both inner core and outer matter in a family heirloom of nesting dolls.”


Philip passed away at the age of 99 on Friday 9 April 2021† Buckingham Palace made the announcement in an official statement that read: “It is with deep sadness that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the passing of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
