Believe it or not, he was not always 99 years old.

First and foremost, RIP Prince Philip.

Making it to 99 years old is surely an accomplishment.

But for the last year or so, all we've seen of Prince Philip are pictures of him in the back seat of cars. The pictures have been a permanent fixture on my Twitter feed, tbh.

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want the last thing people see of me to be pictures in the back of a car.

Basically, I was just curious what the guy looked like when he wasn't 99 years old.

Because Lord knows if I make it to 99, I'd want to be remembered as I was when I was not 99 in the back of a car.
