The Palace say he passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.
He visited the Midlands many times, at the side of the Queen, for celebrations and to show support in darker times.
Prince Philip's visits to the East Midlands
Prince Philip's visits to the West Midlands
One of the first filmed official visits to the West Midlands after the Royal Wedding of 1947 was to the Shrewsbury agricultural show in 1949.
He visited Nottingham in the same year, and returned in 1984 to unveil ITV News Central's new headquarters, making a joke about his “Spitting Image” lookalike.
The Duke of Edinburgh took a strong interest in Midlands’ manufacturing industries, visiting the Fort Dunlop, Rolls Royce and Jaguar plants over the years.
He spent five and a half hours examining tyres at Fort Dunlop, as well as enjoying a drink in Burton-on-Trent in 2002.
He was clearly moved when he visited a hospital and spoke to those injured in the Birmingham Pub Bombings in 1974.
But was on hand to grab the elbow of a man who slipped in the mud during a visit to Walsall in 1981!
In the last few years of his public life he made several visits to Leicester, including for the first stop on the Diamond Jubilee Tour in 2012, and to attend the Royal Maundy Service at Leicester Cathedral in 2017.
The Royal couple had visited Birmingham to enact the same tradition decades before, where the Queen hands out symbolic ‘Maundy Money’ to nominated recipients.
His most recent visit to the city was for the opening of Grand Central - and he had previously opened the Bull Ring Centre in 1964.
The tributes and condolences from the Midlands have been quick to pour in.
