Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, released a statement on Monday honoring his life and legacy Prince Philip, who passed away last week, and remember him as a civil servant and a grandfather.
William said in a statement posted on the social media accounts of Kensington Palace: “The century of my grandfather’s life is determined by service – to the country and the Commonwealth, to wife and Women His prince, and our family.
William said: “I feel fortunate not only to have his example guide me, but also to have his enduring presence in my adult life – both good times and tough days. Best.
The photo that William shared shows his grandfather sitting in a carriage with William’s oldest son, Prince George, who came third on the throne.
William’s brother, Prince Harry, will be returning from the US to fulfill his duties, but his pregnant wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, has been advised by doctors not to fly.
In the statement, Prince William said he was grateful that his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, had for many years been acquainted with his grandfather.
William added: “I will never underestimate the special memories my children will always have of their great-grandparents picking them up in the carriage and witnessing their sense of adventure and talent. His mischievous humor.
“My grandfather was an extraordinary man and part of an extraordinary generation,” he said. “Catherine and I will continue to do what he wants and will support the Queen in the years to come. I will miss my grandfather, but I know he will want us to keep working.”
