British History Society:


A Toast to the Life of the Late HRH The Prince Philip







The late HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh would have turned 100 on June 10, 2021. To mark the occasion, Britsburgh Board Member Steve Shandor will be presenting a slide show, including small video clips, focusing on Prince Philip's life -- especially the years prior to his marriage to Princess Elizabeth and lesser-known aspects of his life as consort.


Following the initial slideshow presentation, there will be time to drink a Toast (BYOB) to the late HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.


After the Toast, attendees will be encouraged to offer their own "Prince Philip stories", which they might have heard over the years. Additional light-hearted anecdotes will presented by Steve Shandor.


Questions, please contact Steve Shandor at 412/951-6923.
