The 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh, who died in April 2021, made his will before his death, but it is not allowed to be displayed in front of the public yet, and the proceeding that is currently going on in the court related to this case, about revealing it or not, shows that it won’t happen soon.
Prince Phillip, the husband of Princess Diana, died 2 months before his 100th birthday.It is a tradition in the Royal Family that after the death of any royal family member, his will remains undisclosed no matter what.
The same procedure continued in the case of Prince Phillip.The major reason behind this action is ‘the protection of the dignity of a royal family member’, who, in this case, is the Queen herself.
The president announced earlier that the will of late Prince Philip will not be disclosed to the public at any cost.
In the recent hearing at court, the judge said that the public might be interested in knowing what is written in the will.Media will also show interest in case the contents of the will are not kept hidden, and that is a general thing. After this level of publicity, the actual purpose of not disclosing the will of the late royal family member will not have any value.
The first person whose will was kept disclosed, was the younger brother of Queen Mary, Prince Francis of the royal family.
The last person whose will is not going to be revealed ever is the Queen’s sister, the late Princess Margaret.Earlier, the son of late Princess Margaret, Mr. Brown, also wished to see the will of his mother, but his application was not accepted by the officials.
