In the show, royal watcher Robert Hardman points out that the moment Her Majesty ascended to the throne, Philip staunchly stood by her.
“When called upon to do his duty, he was the first to swear allegiance to his new Queen. At that moment, he is subordinating himself and his role to the Queen. He is dedicating his life to her not just as husband but as defender, as her number one.”

While this togetherness may seem routine for most married couples, it’s not the case for the queen and her husband. In fact, the pair usually live apart and typically reunite at Windsor Castle for the Easter holidays.
The rest of the year, according to royal insiders, the 98-year-old Philip can usually be found spending his days and nights at Wood Farm on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
