The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William has paid a glowing tribute to his grandfather, and the late Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.
The Duke of Cambridge in a statement released on Monday 12th April 2021, by the British Royal family on their official social media handle, posted a photo of the late Prince Philip and his son, Prince George together on horse carriage ride, while describing his grandfather as an extraordinary man and part of an extraordinary generation.
The Duke of Cambridge who is set to reunite with his brother Prince Harry for the funeral of their grandfather since his explosive interview with Oprah, had this to say about Prince Philip:
“My grandfather’s century of life was defined by service – to his country and Commonwealth, to his wife and Queen, and to our family.
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. 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!
My grandfather was an extraordinary man and part of an extraordinary generation. Catherine and I will continue to do what he would have wanted and will support The Queen in the years ahead. I will miss my Grandpa, but I know he would want us to get on with the job“.
