Como colegio Británico fundado por familias inmigrantes inglesas hace 80 años con el fin de transmitir el idioma y cultura Británica, nos sumamos al pesar mundial por el fallecimiento del Duque de Edimburgo.

—-

The Duke (99) was the longest-serving consort in British history and the longest-serving partner of a reigning monarch.

Prince Philip and the Queen had four children, eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Their first son, the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, was born in 1948, followed by his sister, the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, in 1950, the Duke of York, Prince Andrew, in 1960 and the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward, in 1964.

Prince Philip was born on the Greek island of Corfu on 10 June 1921.

His father was Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark, a younger son of King George I of the Hellenes.

His mother, Princess Alice, was a daughter of Prince Louis of Battenberg and a great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

It is with a heavy heart that we join the world in mourning for the passing of The Duke of Edinburgh.
