Prince Philip is a Prince Consort to the Queen. In the UK, a Queen can be Queen regnant (a female monarch) or Queen consort (wife of the king). However on the male side, King is reserved strictly for a male monarch. Instead, the husband of a ruling Queen is called a Prince Consort.

Prince Philip was in the navy or something like that and whilst the Queens father was king he went on a visit to where Prince Philip was. The Queen at the time was only 13 and she fell in love with him; they then later married and had children and that is how Prince Philip and the Queen meet.
No. There currently already is a Crown Prince to Greece, (Crown Prince Pavlos and his wife Crown Princess Marie-Chantal), and even if Prince Pavlos wasn't heir to the throne Prince Philip couldnt be King as he is the consort to another country.

A King in the UK is a male sovereign, a man who inherits the throne. At the moment, it is Elizabeth II who is the sovereign, not her husband. So that he is not given a title that is 'higher' than the actual ruler, in the UK his position is called a Prince Consort.
If Queen Elizabeth dies before Prince Philip does, then he will not be King, as he married into royalty. Her son, Prince Charles (married to Camilla, was married to Diana, father of William and Harry) will become King of England.
Philip is not a king. He is the husband of the British Queen who is the person who is the head of state and who inherited the British throne when her Father died.

A reigning King of Britain can make his wife a Queen but she can never act as the head of state.
Prince Phillip is not, nor will he be the King of Great Britain- he is the Prince Consort. The monarchy will pass from HM Queen Elizabeth II to the next in order of sucession. Right now that is Prince Charles.

A prince is a king or queen's son. When a king or queen dies and the throne is passed onto a prince making him a ruler he is no longer called a prince. He is called a king. So the answer is no. A prince can not be called a ruler.
Prince Philip (10th June 1921- ) is currently aged 90 and the husband of the current queen, Elizabeth II (21st April 1926- ). Prince Charles (14th November 1948- ) is the heir apparent to the British throne and will become King upon the death of his mother, Elizabeth II. He is the son of Prince Philip and Elizabeth II, so therefore obviously younger than Prince Philip.
