Prince Philip Laid to Rest in Royal Vault at St. George's Chapel


“I feel lucky to have not just had his example to guide me, but his enduring presence well into my own adult life–both through good times and the hardest days,” he wrote. “I will always be grateful that my wife had so many years to get to know my grandfather and for the kindness he showed her. I will never take for granted the special memories my children will always have of their great-grandpa coming to collect them in his carriage and seeing for themselves his infectious sense of adventure as well as his mischievous sense of humour!”

Meanwhile, Prince Harry—who flew to the U.K. solo after doctors did not give pregnant wife Meghan Markle clearance to travel—remembered the “cheeky” man he looked up to.

“My grandfather was a man of service, honor and great humor,” Harry said. “He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm—and also because you never knew what he might say next.”

“He will be remembered as the longest reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke,” his message continued. “But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ’til the end.”
