Prince Philip wanted to die in the comfort of his own home – a last wish that came true on Friday, a royal source told The Post.
The 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh has died “peacefully” at Windsor Castle, his residence, after spending nearly a month in hospital with heart problems.
“It was the Duke’s burning desire to die peacefully at home,” the royal source said. “We knew that when he was brought home, it was to die on his own terms, not in a hospital bed, but in his own bed.”
The source added: “Philip didn’t want fuss. He wanted to do things his way until the end.”

In February, Philip was admitted to hospital and underwent heart surgery before being released on March 16 – the last time he was seen publicly.
The Queen considers Windsor Castle her home – and Buckingham Palace her office.
In his later years, the Duke spent most of his time at the secluded five-bedroom Wood Farm in Wolferton, Norfolk, on the grounds of Queen’s Sandringham.
Last summer, after a stint at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, the Queen and her husband took a two-week retreat at Wood Farm, where Philip had lived full-time for nearly three years, until the pandemic urges the courtiers to take him to Windsor. Castle in March.
Wood Farm is located in a secluded part of Sandringham that overlooks the sea – and this is where the Queen, Philip and their children have gone to escape the public spotlight for the past 50 years.
When the family is there, the servants do not wear the usual royal uniforms and Prince Philip did not attend the ceremony.
