Prince Phillip: A Life in Photos

There’s bittersweet news today as Prince Phillip was discharged from hospital. It follows a number of recent check-ins for the husband of The Queen that leave all at Tea & Sympathy concerned for his general well-being. However, our thoughts are with him, and we’d like to celebrate the good innings he’s had to date with these superb photos taken throughout his life. Chin up Phil, show us that stiff upper lip!
