  • Prince Philip just turned 99 and is celebrating his birthday with the Queen.

  • The royal family released a new photo of Her Majesty and Prince Philip to celebrate the day.

Prince Philip turns 99 today, June 10, and the royal family just dropped a brand new picture of him chilling out with the Queen at Windsor Castle to celebrate. The couple are currently staying at Windsor while self-isolating amid coronavirus, and have been there for several months at this point.

According to Hello Magazine, Philip plans to spend his day hanging with Her Majesty and talking to close friends and family over video chat. "Given the panorama of experience they share, their interest in their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, I'm sure talking to them on the phone on video calls is a pleasure they share," royal biographer Robert Lacey tells the magazine. "The Duke has always been the gadget man and he must revel in it in that sense."

FYI, Philip usually lives on the Sandringham Estate, but he's been spending more time than ever with the Queen due to coronavirus. "He didn't want to stay on at Sandringham on his own," explains Robert. "As each of them looked at the challenge ahead, they wanted to be together. He will be supporting her morally in the way that he always has. She will value that companionship much more than if he were at the other end of a telephone."
