Queen Elizabeth II marked her husband, Prince Philip, 100th birthday at Windsor Castle by planting a rose carried the name of the late prince.
The queen planted the rose and called it as “Duke of Edinburgh Rose.” It was gifted to her by the Royal Horticultural Society.
Buckingham Palace announced that the rose honors “all the marvelous things that he did over his lifetime and for everyone to remember so much that he did.”
The palace added: “The Fund will give a million more young people, from all circumstances and backgrounds, the opportunity to achieve a DofE Award, continuing, “Each rose purchased will help establish new DofE centers, deepen existing support, and train thousands more Leaders and volunteers.”
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, passed away at the age of 99 last April after facing some health problems related to the age.
The funerary ceremony took place at Windsor Castle with a limited presence of guests including the 95-year-old monarch, the earl of the throne Prince Charles, Princess Royal Anne, Prince Edward, and Prince Andrew.
In addition, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry attended the funeral.
