PRINCE PHILIP (DUKE OF EDINBURGH)
Handwritten, cordial letter on Windsor Castle stationery, signed "Philip", sending thanks for a picture of HMS Magpie, the Royal Navy sloop the Prince had commanded. Matted to an overall size of 10x17¼
Autograph Letter signed: "Philip", 5½x8, matted with an unsigned color photo of the Duke with Queen Elizabeth to an overall size of 10x17¼. Windsor Castle, 1981 June 13. To "Dear Kippa", in full: "This is to thank you and John very much indeed for your contribution to the picture of 'Magpie'. Although I had corrected the picture when I saw it in the catalogue, the present comes as a complete surprise. I am really delighted with it. Lots of love". Prince Philip, born Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark in 1921, was exiled from Greece as an infant when his uncle, King Constantine, was deposed. A British Naval officer during World War II, he served in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans and in the Mediterranean. In 1947 he wed Crown Princess Elizabeth, having first renounced all foreign royal titles and being named Duke of Edinburgh. The couple's first child, Charles, was born the following year. In 1952, Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne, and her consort Philip became Prince of the United Kingdom in 1957. Philip is now the longest-serving consort in the nation's history. Though given to occasional verbal gaffes, Philip has been an active Prince, particularly active on environmental issues. HMS Magpie, a Royal Navy sloop which served on antisubmarine duty in World War II, was the only vessel commanded by Prince Philip (1950). The Magpie was scrapped in 1959. Multiple mailing folds. Fine condition. Not Matted in Gallery of History Style.
