When you're a royal family member, it's pretty hard to get any privacy. However, thanks to a ruling from the High Court in London, it seems that the contents of Prince Philip's final will and testament will be kept private for a very long time.
The Hill shared a decision from the court which stated that the late Duke of Edinburgh's will shall remain sealed for 90 years in order to protect the monarchy's “dignity.” Judge Andrew McFarlane stated the reasoning behind this decision, saying, “The degree of publicity that publication would be likely to attract would be very extensive and wholly contrary to the aim of maintaining the dignity of the Sovereign.”
McFarlane also stated that “no copy of the will should be made for the record or kept on the court file.” This follows a royal tradition that dates back to 1910. According to The Hill, other royals who have had their wills sealed include Queen Elizabeth II and her sister, Princess Margaret.
