It was not an automatic succession. When Philip died, the title was succeeded by Charles. When the Queen died, it merged with the Crown, now being available for re-creation.
King Charles is expected to make a new creation of the Edinburgh title for Edward in due course, probably sometime between the end of the period of mourning (next week) and the Coronation, likely next June or July.
I thought that when the Queen died Prince Edward would become the Duke of Edinburgh.
