Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are reportedly able to keep their love alive even though they no longer live together.

A royal source claimed that Prince Philip is currently residing in Sandringham, while the Queen is in Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh is enjoying a quieter life in the private estate ever since he retired from his royal duties.

The Queen, on the other hand, is in Windsor Castle because it is closer to her royal engagements since she has not yet retired from her official duties.

On weekends or whenever possible, Prince Philip visits the Queen at Windsor Castle and he also goes to the Buckingham Palace to meet with the members of the royal family.

“He very much enjoys Wood Farm ad he and the Queen still see each other at some point in the week or weekends,” the source said.

A second insider added that the Queen misses her husband especially when she has to travel for work. But even if this is the case, Her Majesty understands that Prince Philip earned a proper retirement because of everything he has done for the royal family and his old age as well.

“She knows him too well – if he was still at the center of royal life he’d feel he had to be involved,” the insider said.

Prior to his retirement, Prince Philip carried out 22, 219 solo engagements, and he has also given 5,496 speeches. The dad of four has also written 14 books throughout his career.

Meanwhile, Her Majesty and Prince Philip celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary last year. Two decades earlier, the Queen gave a touching speech about Prince Philip on their 50th wedding anniversary.

She said that her husband does not take easily to compliments, but Prince Philip has been her strength and stay all these years.

And during his interview, Prince Philip also revealed his secrets to a happy and lasting marriage and said that it is all about having tolerance and different interests.
