Prince Philip Has Royal Fans Swooning Over Never-Before-Seen Video As He Passes The Torch To Prince Edward

Prince Philip Son Edward Charity

Prince Philip, 99, who is enjoying his retirement with fun-filled hobbies, has requested that his son, Prince Edward, step in and take over one of his patronages.

In 1947, Prince Philip took over the London Federation of Boys’ Clubs that has since changed its name to the London Youth charity.

Due to his age and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Duke of Edinburgh is forced to remain in quarantine with The Queen, which is why his son is replacing him.

A video montage was shared on social media confirming the passing of the baton between Prince Philip and Prince Edward, 56.

The never-before-seen clip shows an elegantly dressed Prince Philip watching a boxing event as the organization’s patron.

He gave out medals to the young boxers and delivered a brief speech to say he was honored to work with the charity.

Royal fans went wild over Prince Philip’s handsome looks and charisma. A backer of the Queen’s husband made this comment: “Thank you very much 🙏🏻this is beautiful.”
