It’s one of those things: just a coincidence or something more.
Probably happenstance. But curious.
One speaks here about the death of Prince Philip of England, Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth. He died Friday at the ripe old age of 99.
Was it covid? No evidence of that, though he was hospitalized for extended periods at least twice in recent months, and although both his son, Charles, and a grandson contracted the coronavirus.
He and the queen themselves were vaccinated back last January (Pfizer). Some might wonder about that.
But there’s his simple age: twenty years beyond the average longevity of 79.4 in the U.K. And so: nothing tremendously unexpected of someone who is at the cusp of a century old. (There are now an estimated 573,000 people worldwide who are more than a hundred!)
Yet one observes, at the same time, that his death arrived in the midst of a historic pandemic.
As pointed out in an upcoming “special report” (about Bill Gates), this brings to mind the prince’s notorious quote in 1988, when he told an interviewer from Deutsche Presse-Agentur, in that irascibly endearing way of his, “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation.”
Pray always for purity and love
