Are you familiar with who has married who, and where everyone came from? Do you know all about the major people in the royal family, and the etiquette that governs their actions? Why do they do the things they do in the ways they do them, anyway?

1What country is Philip, Duke of Edinburgh from?
Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, is the husband of Queen Elizabeth II. He's been a fixture of the British monarchy for decades and is one of the longest reigning consorts in history! He's not originally a British subject, though! The Crown talks a lot about his early life and where his family came from. What country did Philip come from before moving to England to marry the Queen? What country was he a prince in before he was made Duke of Edinburgh?
2How many kids did Queen Elizabeth II and Philip have?
