The fact remains just the same that Philip depends for all he is and all he has on the say-so of his late father- in- law, King George VI and after him his wife Queen Elizabeth II and her advisers.

Philip's last wife, Cleopatra, had borne a daughter a few days before his assassination, while Attalus, her uncle and guardian, had been sent on ahead to Asia to share the command of the forces with Parmenion.
A possible rival for the throne remained Attalus himself; the uncle of Cleopatra (Philip's last wife) was disaffected because of her murder and that of her daughter, but he had no claim to the throne of Macedonia; indeed, he was loyal to Philip and hostile to his assassin.

 The Royalist - Prince Philip Puts The Record Straight
Prince Philip has offered an unexpected insight into his private life, personally altering an author's manuscript in which it was claimed he sleeps in a separate bed to his wife of almost 60 years, the Queen.
