You're reading: Royal family gather as Prince Philip turns 90

Prince Philip — the colorful and outspoken husband of Queen Elizabeth II — will attend a special church service and reception to celebrate his 90th birthday.

The queen, Prince William and his new bride Kate Middleton will join the rest of the royal family to celebrate Philip’s birthday.

Sportsmen, foreign royals, Prince Philip’s godchildren and staff who have worked for the royal family will be among the 750 guests invited to the church service at the chapel at Windsor Castle Sunday and to a reception.

Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, married the queen in 1947. He is the son of the late Prince Andrew of Greece and a great-great-grandson of Britain’s Queen Victoria, giving him deep royal roots. He turned 90 on Friday.
