Prince Philip’s official cause of death revealed

Prince Philip’s official cause of death has been listed as old age, according to reports.

The Duke of Edinburgh passed away last month at the age of 99, and though he’d been in hospital for a procedure related to a heart condition just a few weeks before his death, his doctor didn’t single out any specific contributory factor.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Sir Huw Thomas, the head of the royal medical household, listed old age as the cause of Philip’s death.

It is an accepted description if the patient is over 80 and if the doctor has personally cared for the patient for a long time, having observed a gradual decline.
