The Prince, officially titled the Duke of Edinburgh, died on April 9, 2021 at the age of 99.

The President said Liberia fondly recalls the 1961 visit to Monrovia of the Queen and Prince Philip when they attended the country’s independence celebration.
The Liberian Leader praised the deceased Prince for his advocacy and promotion of environmental issues, the values of humanity and for constantly being by the side of Queen Elizabeth during their seven decades of marriage.
He said Liberia stands with the Royal Family and all whose lives were touched by the Prince during his full life.
