Prince William and Duchess Kate have arrived at Windsor Castle for Prince Philip’s funeral, on Saturday 17 April.
The couple has been photographed wearing black face coverings as they sat in car which drove them into Windsor.
Duchess Kate looked elegant in a somber black outfit. She wore an elegant pearl necklace, black face covering and black hat trimmed with a lace veil.
The public hasn’t seen Duchess Kate following the news of Prince Philip’s death up until now. However, the official Kensington Royal Instagram account shared a photo of the Duke of Edinburgh with Prince George in tribute.
William said of Philip in his tribute: ‘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.’
Prince William says that he and Kate would continue to do what his grandfather Prince Philip would have wanted.
‘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,’ he said.
‘I will miss my Grandpa, but I know he would want us to get on with the job.’
Prince Charles has also been seen arriving as he prepares to say goodbye to his father. The Duke of Edinburgh will be laid to rest this afternoon after he died ‘peacefully’ at Windsor Castle last week.
Prince Philip passed away peacefully on the morning of Friday, April 9 aged 99.
