Prince Philip Reportedly Left £30 Million in His Will To “Three Key Staff” Members

Prince Philip apparently left an extremely generous sum to his closest aides upon his passing in early April.

The majority of the royal’s estate was likely left to his wife, Queen Elizabeth, as she was co-owner of many of his assets, but a source close to Buckingham Palace revealed to The Sun that the Duke of Edinburgh also wanted to give something special to three key staff members he was very close with. “Unlike some other royals, Prince Philip will be generous to the three men who looked after him,” the insider told the outlet. “These include his private secretary Brigadier Archie Miller Bakewell, his page William Henderson and valet Stephen Niedojadlo.” All three men played a major role in caring for the 99-year-old royal in his final years with Bakewell even regularly standing in for Philip at events when he was unable to attend. Henderson and Niedojadio would also take turns staying with him during his time at Wood Farm on the Sandringham Estate, and Henderson was by his side during his final two days at Windsor Castle.
