Oyogist.com has learned that Prince Philip, who passed away on friday at age of 99, was not only related to Queen Elizabeth the II by marriage, but blood also.
The duo (Elizabeth and Philip) were great-great grandchildren of Queen Victoria.
Victoriaa and Prince Albert had a son, Edward VII, followed by great-grandsons Prince Albert Victor and George V.
After Albert Victor died, his throne was given to George who had two sons — Edward VIII followed by George VI. But Edward absconded the throne to marry an American woman, Wallis Simpson, thus George VI became king and his daughter, Elizabeth II, succeeded him as queen.
