UK Queen gifted rose in honor of late husband Philip

The queen was presented with the newly bred pink commemorative flower, named 'The Duke of Edinburgh Rose,' by the president of the Royal Horticultural Society.

The shrub was planted at the rose border of the East Terrace Garden at the queen's Windsor Castle home.

A royalty from the sale of each rose will go towards the Duke of Edinburgh Award Living Legacy Fund, supporting a scheme for young people that Philip set up and which now operates in more than 130 countries.

Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, died on April 9, just two months short of his landmark birthday after more than seven decades of marriage to Elizabeth, who is now 95.
