Harry and Meghan have given tribute to Prince Philip who died on Friday at the age of 99.
According to a statement from Buckingham Palace, the Duke passed away at Windsor Castle peacefully.
As a tribute to Prince Philip, Harry and Meghan posted a message on their
Archewell website in the memory of the Duke of Edinburgh. The short tribute to Harry’s grandfather pays thanks to him for his services and that he will be greatly missed by everyone.
Prince Philip’s death on Friday comes as a big loss to his family and the monarch. He was Queen Elizabeth II’s husband and the longest-serving royal in Britain over the last ten centuries.
Prince William and Duchess Kate along with the working members of the royal family updated their social media accounts in a uniform manner to mourn the death of Prince Philip. They changed their profile pictures and posted a portrait of the late Prince in black and white color to reflect their reverence for the Late Duke.
The message entailed the announcement from the Queen about her husband’s passing away at Windsor Castle in the morning on Friday and that the Royal family was with the people around the world to mourn this great loss. The message from the family also stated that any further announcement in this regard will be made at the right time.
Two of the late Prince’s children, Prince Edward and Princess Anne, honored their beloved father in their interviews which were recorded for broadcast post-death. Princess Anne spoke about the influence of her father on the UK and its loving people.
Princess Anne, known as Princess Royal, has said that people might underestimate the huge impact of his father on all post-marriage happenings. She further said that without him the family outlook would be entirely different.
According to the Princess, one of the main reasons for such a huge impact on his father was his adaptability towards the technological changes. However, she insisted upon that it was more about the people than technology.
Prince Edward, the youngest one of Prince Philip and Queen, also shed some light on the strength of the marriage of his parents. Prince Edward says that his parents had been a great support to each other over the course of years for anything.
The tribute from Harry and Meghan came just a month later after their controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey. In the interview, the couple shared reasons for stepping out of royal duties and why they moved to America in quest of more independent and private life.
