Philip's grandfather, George I of Greece, was assassinated in Salonika at the end of 1912, shortly after it had been captured by the Greeks in the First Balkan War. He was out for a walk, and a young man came out of a cafe and shot him.

Rare interview:
Prince Philip discusses the historical fate of his late cousin King Mihail of Romania (video mostly in English): http://stirileprotv.ro/special/printul-filip-interviu-exclusiv-cu-john-florescu-a-cunoscut-o-pe-ana-la-nunta-mea-nu-stiam-ce-se-infiripa-intre-ei.html
Березы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.
