A judge ruled Thursday that the will of the late Prince Philip should remain secret to protect the “dignity” of his widow Queen Elizabeth II, who is Britain’s head of state.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s will is to remain secret to protect the “dignity” of the Queen, after a High Court ruling. After the death of a senior member of the royal family, it has been the convention for over a century that an application to seal their will is made.
The will of Prince Philip will be sealed for 90 years to protect the “dignity” of the queen, says the UK’s high court. The prince earned about $500,000 a year as a member of the royal family and his net worth was estimated at around $30 million, including from private earnings.

Buddy Dignity? The Queen is already dignified. Welp, it’ll be a “dead” issue because most of us will have bitten the dust, by then.
Michael Dudley This kind of behavior was what got America going. The Judge doesn’t even look at the will before deciding?
