Happy Birthday To Prince Philip Who Turns 97 Today

Cue the 'happy birthday' claxons, as Prince Philip is celebrating turning 97-year-old today.

The Queen's hubby is bound to be marking his ripe old age with all of the royal family, including the new additions of Prince Louis and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

Hopefully the Queen's got him a cake big enough to fit all the candles.

Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II tied the knot way back in 20th November 1947, but the pair actually started getting to know one another in 1934.

They got engaged after the Philip served in the Second World War with Mediterranean and Pacific fleets in July 1947.

Philip's just become a great grandad for the sixth time, after Prince William and Kate welcomed their third baby together earlier this year in April.

He's also been recovering from surgery on his hip, but hopefully Prince Philip's spending his own big day in true royal style!
