Just hours after Henry of England arrived in London to attend the funeral of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who died on Friday at the age of 99, his other grandson, William, was sending out a meaningful message. "Kate and I will continue to do what he would have wanted and support the queen for years to come," says the prince, second in line to the throne. "I will miss my grandfather, but I know that he would want us to continue with the work." This promise that the prince apparently made to his grandfather leaves Enrique in a compromised place, who a little over a year ago resigned his role in the royal family to start a new life in the United States with Meghan Markle and the son of both Archie.

William of England's words come after the queen's four sons and Philippe of Edinburgh have spoken about him in the last few hours in a form of measured but informal protocol. "The century of my grandfather's life was defined by service: to his country and the Commonwealth, to his wife and Queen, and to our family," begins the letter that Prince William has dedicated to him. The Duke of Cambridge acknowledges feeling “very fortunate not only for having had his example to guide me, but also for having his constant presence throughout my adult life, both in good times and in the most difficult days.”

Guillermo has published this message next to an unpublished photo of his grandfather and his older son Jorge. "I will always be grateful that my wife had so many years to meet my grandfather and for the kindness he showed her." "I will never stop cherishing the special memories that my children will have forever of their great-grandfather coming to pick them up in his car and catching his sense of adventure, as well as his mischievous sense of humor!", Says the prince. The eldest son of Charles of England concludes: “My grandfather was an extraordinary man and part of an extraordinary generation.”

Shortly afterwards, it was Henry of England who paid homage to Philip of Edinburgh through the website of his Archewell foundation . “My grandfather was a man of service, honor, and great humor. He was genuinely himself, with a very sharp wit, and could turn heads in any room because of his charm, and also because you never knew what he would say next. He will be remembered as the oldest reigning consort, a decorated military man, a prince and a duke. But for me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent to the pain of the past year, he was my grandfather: barbecue master, joke legend and cheeky to the end. " She adds: “ He has been a rock to Her Majesty the Queen with incomparable devotion, by her side during 73 years of marriage. I know right now he would say to all of us, beer in hand, 'Oh go ahead!' To conclude: “Thank you for your service, your dedication to Grandma and for always being yourself. We will miss you deeply, but will always remember you, the nation and the world. For Meghan, Archie and myself (as well as their future great-granddaughter) you will always have a special place in our hearts ”. The message ends with the motto of the Royal Marines, " Per Mare, Per Terram" , which translates as "By sea, by land" .
