Buckingham Palace gave no reason when it announced its death, but it did follow a long history of health problems.
Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, was discharged from hospital on March 16 after a month's stay.
He had been admitted after feeling bad and later had what has been described as a successful procedure for pre-existing heart disease.
This was his longest hospital stay. But the Duke had had a number of hospitalizations over the past decade, missing out on some important public engagements.
In 2011, at the age of 90, Prince Philip spent four nights in the hospital after experiencing chest pain. On Christmas Eve 2011, he underwent an operation at Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire to place a stent to treat a blocked coronary artery.
The Duke also suffered from cystitis, which resulted in his missing out on some of the Queen's 2012 Diamond Jubilee celebrations and the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Paralympic Games.
In 2013, he spent 11 days in the hospital for planned exploratory operations on his abdomen.
In 2017 he was admitted to the hospital "as a precautionary measure" to treat an "infection due to an existing illness".
In a statement, the palace said Prince Philip was "disappointed" at missing the queen's speech marking the opening of parliament this year.
In 2019, he was hospitalized for 5 days with "pre-existing illness", although it was not clear whether this was related to his heart disease.
Prince Philip would have turned 100 in June. He once said he couldn't think of anything worse than reaching that age, Insider's Mikhaila Friel reported.
He "died peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle," Buckingham Palace said in its statement on Friday.
