Britain's Queen Elizabeth received a rose this week in honor of the 100th birthday of her late husband Philip.

The flower is named after the prince and is called the Duke of Edinburgh Rose.

The rose is a gift from the Royal Horticultural Society, a charity of which the Queen is the patroness.

The rose is a new variety and has a deep pink color with white lines.

The flower, measuring 60 to 70 centimeters in length, has "a delicate scent and is suitable for rose beds, but can also be combined with other plants and flowers", according to the grower.

In memory of Prince Philip, rose bushes are planted on the east garden terrace of Windsor Castle.

The roses will also be sold and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Living Legacy Fund, the foundation that donates money to young people who want to be considered for a Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

These prizes were created by the Prince in 1956 and are awarded to young people aged 14 to 24 with a special talent, who have undergone remarkable personal development or have achieved something else remarkable.

Prince Philip passed away on April 9 at the age of 99.

At 99, Philip was the oldest male member of the British Royal Family ever.
