Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have paid tribute to Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, via their Archewell website. In a similar fashion to the official royal family website, the couple removed all functions from the site and put some words in his honour up instead.

"In loving memory of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh," the words read, along with the dates of his life, 1921-2021."

In a personal note underneath, Harry and Meghan wrote: "Thank you for your service... you will be greatly missed."

Weeks before Prince Philip's sad death, Prince Harry recently shared a funny anecdote involving his much-loved grandfather during an interview with James Corden, saying that despite having moved to Los Angeles with his young family, he and Meghan remained in regular contact with the Queen and Philip over Zoom.

When asked by James if the Queen knows how to video call, Harry responded with a laugh and said, "Yes, both my grandparents do... We’ve Zoomed them a few times, they’ve seen Archie running around. But my grandfather, instead of pressing 'leave meeting', he just goes ‘doof' [mimics shutting the laptop]. I’m like, okay, bye?"

Many other prominent public figures, including Prime Minister Boris Johnson, have also shared their condolences following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh, and have offered heartfelt sympathies to the Queen following her sad loss. She and Philip were married for an astonishing 73 years, during which it was widely known that he was her closest confidant and greatest source of strength and support.

Our thoughts are with the entire royal family during this very sad time.
