MADRID, 10 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -

Prince Edward of the United Kingdom has received this Friday by decision of his brother, King Charles III, the title of Duke of Edinburgh that for decades and until his death was held by their late father, Prince Philip.

The husband of the late Elizabeth II obtained this duchy when they married, recovered 'ex profeso' for him in 1947, although its origins date back to the 18th century. After a period of vacancy, the baton will be picked up by his youngest son, who turns 59 just this Friday.

Both are "proud" to "continue the legacy of Prince Philip to promote opportunities and young people of all backgrounds to reach their full potential," according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.
