The Evening Standard’s royal editor, Robert Jobson, joins the podcast to talk about the life and legacy of Prince Philip, who has died at the age of 99.

Robert discusses the Duke of Edinburgh’s role in modernising the monarchy, and his importance to the Queen during their long marriage.

Buckingham Palace says Prince Philip “passed away peacefully” at Windsor Castle, where he had been staying with the Queen since being discharged from hospital on March 16.

He had spent a month in hospital earlier this year and underwent surgery for a pre-existing heart condition last month.
