This week on how did it come to this? A death that was expected and yet unexpected. The royals have a penchant to fascinate and be the source of gossip. For some 60 years, his life was the source of story, intrigue, rumour, innuendo, and tabloid stories about reptiles. As the husband to the Queen he was the Prince Consort. His Royal Highness, Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth, and Baron Greenwich. From the line of Greece and Denmark to England’s throne. How did the first monarchs of a modern era navigate their intrusion of privacy? was Philip ok with giving up his career and life? What does a prince consort do? Why didn’t I complete my Duke of Edinburgh's award? And ultimately, how did it come to this?
