Prince Williams has released a statement days after the death of his grandfather, Prince Philip.
The Duke of Edinburgh died on Friday, April 9, at the age of 99.
Prince William’s official Instagram account, Kensington Royal, has now shared a photo of the late Prince Philip riding with Prince William’s first son, Prince George.
In the caption, William paid tribute to his grandfather.
He wrote: “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.”
This comes one day after Prince William and Kate Middleton posted a black and white photo of Prince Philip to their website with the message: “HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. 1921- 2021”.
