HRH Duke of Edinburgh 1921 - 2021
Prime Minister pays tribute to Prince Philip
Prime Minister Boris Johnson says it is “with great sadness” that he received news of Prince Philip’s death from Buckingham Palace.
Paying tribute, he said the Duke of Edinburgh earned the affection of generations in the UK, across the Commonwealth and around the world.
“He was the longest serving consort in history, one of the last surviving people in this country to have served in the Second World War where he was mentioned in dispatches for bravery.”
