Buckingham Palace Announces Prince Philip's Retirement

These Reactions to Prince Philip's Retirement Prove Twitter Has No Chill Whatsoever

When Buckingham Palace staff were called for an emergency meeting last night, the world went into a frenzy with much speculation being that either Queen Elizabeth II or Prince Philip has passed away. But all was revealed Thursday morning in the UK and it turns out that the Duke of Edinburgh was simply retiring. Last seen in pictures at Lord's Cricket Crown the day before, the 95-year-old was smiling and in good spirits but people prepared for the worst nevertheless.

Now that we know the news wasn't so bad, we can all breathe a sigh of relief and the Twittersphere is having a lot of fun commenting on fuss that social media created around the announcement.

Read on for some of the funniest reactions we've seen.
