The Queen has given the go ahead for an exhibition to celebrate the life of Prince Philip and their 73-year marriage.
Her Majesty agreed to release treasured artefacts for a display that was originally planned to mark the Duke’s centenary.
The exhibition will be held at Windsor Castle and will showcase the couple’s wedding, family and Prince Philip’s naval career, charity work and love of carriage racing.
The Queen will be offered a private tour.
It is hoped the exhibition will help to get the Royal Collection Trust, which runs royal tourism for the Queen, up and running again after it lost millions during Covid and was forced to cut hundreds of jobs.
An insider said: “They are expecting massive numbers of visitors. They’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Queen’s generosity and what she’s agreed to be used.
“Even though it’s all a bit raw coming so soon after she said goodbye, the Queen considers it part of history.”
The source added: “The exhibits paint a picture of the Duke. A lot has been said about him since he died but there is so much more to see.”
The Duke of Edinburgh died last month aged 99.
The Mirror has contacted the Royal Collection Trust for comment.
