Princess Cecilie was killed in a plane crash in 1937, the aircraft in which she was traveling crashed in flames after hitting a factory chimney near Ostend, Belgium, killing all on board, Cecilie was eight months pregnant. Not much is known about Philip’s relationship with his sister, Cecilie, before her tragic death as she lived away from her brother in Germany for quite some time. She was 10 years older than the prince and died when he was just 16. The young prince was photographed attending her funeral service surrounded by men doing Nazi salutes giving further confirmation that Cecilie had joined the Nazi Party, which is something Philip reportedly did not want any part of. Princess Cecilie of Greece and Denmark (22 June 1911 – 16 November 1937) was the third-eldest sister to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Cecilie was buried with her husband and three of her children in Darmstadt Germany.
