Your tribute to Prince Philip
As a resident of a former British holding and having British heritage I have always followed the Royal Family and admired them. When it comes to Prince Phillip I remember seeing him on TV and even a few times when I visited London. I remember seeing him interact with others and seeing how kind and wonderful he was. It will be weird with a senior royal family member no longer present in the world and for this I offer my deepest and sincerest condolences to Her Majesty, the Royal Family, and all those who join me in grieving.

I have been so sad to hear about the passing of such a great man. Although I have never met him, I have admired his family ethics and support for the Queen. The monarchy will be a lesser place without him there.

A real hoot. I've spent many hours camping out on the streets of York and London to see the Queen and Philip and it was worth every minute. He would think I was ridiculous and would probably tell me to get a grip today.

I was devastated when I learned that Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, had died. My mother worked with him for a while a few years ago. My heart goes out to the Queen, her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Under normal circumstances, I would have gone to pay my respects in person, but due to these unprecedented times, it is not possible. When the queen mother died, I was one of those who attended the lying in state and signed the book of condolence and left flowers. May he rest in peace now.
