William And Kate Pay Tribute To Prince Philip On 100th Birthday

Prince William and Kate have paid a touching tribute to Prince Philip on what would have been his 100th birthday on 10 June.

The couple wrote on their social media accounts: “Today we remember His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, on what would have been his 100th birthday.

“Last week, The Queen was gifted a Duke of Edinburgh rose by @The_RHS, of which Her Majesty is Patron. Visit @RoyalFamily to see more.”

The photos show the Queen planting a unique rose that was specially created to mark the Duke of Edinburgh’s centenary in the gardens at Windsor Castle.

The Duke of Edinburgh passed away “peacefully” at Windsor Castle on April 9. His funeral took place eight days later at St George’s Chapel.

With Prince William taking his place in the procession, Duchess Kate also took her place alongside the other guests attending the ceremony for the Duke of Edinburgh. Only 30 people were allowed to attend, due to the restrictions in place from the government for the global health crisis.

After his death, lots of royal family members shared all kinds of tributes to the late Prince, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sharing a never before seen photograph of the Duke of Edinburgh-of him and his great-grandchild Prince George, Kate and William’s first child, back from 2015.

Last month, Prince William and Kate also sent thank you note in response to a letter of condolences saying their family missed their “much loved grandfather and great-grandfather.”

The touching note read: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thank you for your kind words following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. Their Royal Highnesses have been incredibly moved by the many thoughtful messages they have received in recent weeks.

“They will all miss their much loved grandfather and great-grandfather, but your message has provided great comfort at this difficult time.”
