Prince Harry also expressed his love for the The Duke of Edinburgh in a statement

"He will be remembered as the longest reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke. 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," he said.

"So, on that note, Grandpa, thank you for your service, your dedication to Granny, and for always being yourself, The Duke of Sussex continued. "You will be sorely missed, but always remembered—by the nation and the world. Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.”
