Prince Philip would have turned 100 on Thursday. The Queen was given a touching gift in honour of her late husband.

It is the first time that Queen Elizabeth II (95) is celebrating her late husband Prince Philip's († 99) birthday. The Duke of Edinburgh would have been 100 years old today. Shortly before his special day, Her Majesty was given an incredibly thoughtful gift in his honour.

Queen Elizabeth II's Special Gift For Prince Philip's Birthday

The Royal Horticultural Society personally gifted Her Majesty with a newly-bred rose named after her late husband himself. According to Hello!, the rose is deep pink with white lines and double-flowered.

The monarch described the gift presented to her by Keith Weed as "lovely" and "very kind" and helped plant the gift at Windsor Castle herself.

The Queen instantly led Mr. Weed to the garden where she believed the flower should be planted. Her Majesty was in a remarkably good mood, with a warm smile, sunglasses, and a blue dress.

Her Majesty will be able to even see the rose from her apartment window in the palace. On top of that, sales from the new breed will be donated to The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Living Legacy Fund. 

It's an incredibly touching gift that brought a wonderful smile onto Her majesty's face. Watch the footage here:
