I finally finished watching the series last night and it left me win a question: at the end, when Elizabeth is in her coach, alone, it looks like Philip comes up to salute her, and then disappears into the guards on the left side of the screen. Literally disappears, as if he had been a ghost.
Was that supposed to be her father, not Philip? Sort of an affirmation that she was making him proud? If it was Philip, where did he go?
