The websites of both Prince William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, featured a photographic tribute to Prince Philip.

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess and Sussex, posted on the official website of the couple's foundation,

Prince William pulls out of BAFTAs

Though he is yet to speak publicly since Prince Philip died the Duke of Cambridge on Saturday removed himself from his role at this weekend's BAFTA Awards to grieve his grandfather.

He was also due to deliver a speech, via video, at the annual film award ceremony on Sunday night, celebrating the resilience of the film industry over the past year.

His grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh was BAFTAs first president.

Buckingham Palace is expected to announce details of the funeral later on Saturday (local time).

It is likely to be a small, private affair, stripped of the grandeur of traditional royal occasions by COVID-19 restrictions and by the prince's own dislike of people making a fuss.
