Prince William and Duchess Kate Mark Prince Philip's Death Anniversary With Moving Tribute

Prince William and
Duchess Kate took to Twitter to share a moving video montage of the late Duke
which was originally posted by the Queen. The clip highlighted moments of
Her Majesty’s life with Philip, including the birth of their children and their
wedding day.

Alongside the post, the royal
couple wrote: “Remembering The Duke of Edinburgh on the first anniversary
of his death.”

Alongside the Queen’s video
tribute, she also posted a touching poem by Laureate Simon Armitage. The
poem read in part: “On such an occasion to presume to eulogize one man is
to pipe up for a whole generation – that crew whose survival was always the
stuff of minor miracle, who came ashore in orange-crate coracles, fought
ingenious wars, finagled triumphs at sea with flaming decoy boats, and
side-stepped torpedoes.

“Husbands to duty, they
unrolled their plans across billiard tables and vehicle bonnets regrouped at
breakfast. What their secrets were was everyone’s guess and nobody’s business.
Great-grandfathers from birth, in time they became both the inner core and outer
case in a family heirloom of nesting dolls.”

Philip died aged 99 on Friday
9 April 2021. Buckingham Palace made the announcement in an official statement
that read: “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty, the Queen has
announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness, Prince Philip,
Duke of Edinburgh.

“His Royal Highness
passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. The Royal Family join
with people around the world in mourning his loss. Further announcements will
be made in due course.”

Only 30 people were allowed to
attend Philip’s funeral at Windsor Castle due to COVID restrictions, but last
month, a larger service of thanksgiving was held at Westminster Abbey
that saw hundreds in the congregation, including the Queen and the royal
family.
