The Queen has shared a number of photos of her late husband, Prince Philip, to celebrate his incredible life and work.
The royal family’s social media accounts posted photos of his military life, overseas trips and conservation life, including photos of him laughing and smiling with his beloved wife.

There is also an incredible photo of him surrounded by butterflies as they migrate, shared in reference to his work for the environment.

Some photos also pay homage to his military life, which were shared as part of a Royal Naval College tribute.

The legend reveals that Philip visited 70% of the countries of the world and 50 countries of the Commonwealth. 229 of the overseas trips were solo and the rest alongside the Queen.

It reads: “The Duke of Edinburgh was attached to the Commonwealth, meeting and connecting with people from all walks of life.

The Duke had several appointments within the Commonwealth during his lifetime, including with the Commonwealth Games Federation, the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth and the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League. His Royal Highness also had military affiliations in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Trinidad and Tobago.

“The Duke of Edinburgh has organized patronage appointments in 12 Commonwealth countries, from the Bahamas National Trust to Surf Life Saving Australia. In 1956, His Royal Highness founded the Duke of Edinburgh’s Commonwealth Study Conferences, bringing together emerging leaders from across the Commonwealth. The lectures have continued to this day, and over 10,000 people have participated in the Duke of Edinburgh’s leadership programs. “

Prince Philip was extremely passionate about the environment and conservation, something he passed on to his children and grandchildren.

In an article on his conservation work alongside the beautiful butterfly photo, the caption reads: “The Duke of Edinburgh was a passionate advocate for conservation, wildlife and the environment.

“Prince Philip was the first president of the World Wildlife Fund @wwf_uk, international president of @wwf and then president emeritus of @wwf until his death. The prince was also an honorary member of @officialzsl.

“The Duke has been involved in many conservation efforts throughout his life, from establishing an alliance between religious leaders and conservationists, to crossing the South Pacific Ocean and Antarctica to identify native seabirds. “
