The Telegraph newspaper accidentally published an obit of the Duke of Edinburgh, instead of reporting his retirement from official duty today.

The headline of the article read: "HOLD HOLD HOLD Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh dies age XXX," with the subhead: "Prince Philip waves goodbye to a career of service, dedication... and gaffes."

The article, published two hours ago and then swiftly taken down, read:

The Duke of Edinburgh, the longest-serving consort to a monarch in British history, has died at the age of XX, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Prince Philip, whom the Queen described as her "strength and stay" during her record-breaking reign, passed away XXXXXXX

He will be given a royal ceremonial funeral in line with his wishes, which is expected to take place in seven days' time."
