BREAKING: Prince Harry Releases New Statement On Prince Philip's Death

Prince Harry has posted a touching tribute to his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The prince, who has recently returned to the country for the funeral of Prince Philip, said that his grandfather was a man who was "authentically himself" and had "a seriously sharp wit".

In a statement issued through his foundation Archewell, he said: "My grandfather was a man of service, honour and great humour. He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm - and also because you never knew what he might say next.

"He will be remembered as the longest reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke. But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right 'til the end.

"He has been a rock for Her Majesty The Queen with unparalleled devotion, by her side for 73 years of marriage, and while I could go on, I know that right now he would say to all of us, beer in hand, 'Oh do get on with it!'

"So, on that note, Grandpa, thank you for your service, your dedication to Granny, and for always being yourself. You will be sorely missed, but always remembered-by the nation and the world. Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts."

It follows an equally as touching tribute given by Prince William earlier today, who said that he felt lucky to have had his guidance.

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."
