Prince Harry also said how the Duke of Edinburgh would also be remembered by "your future great-granddaughter", referring to the couple's unborn child.

"He could hold the attention of any room due to his charm, and also because you never knew what he might say next.

"He will be remembered as the longest-reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince, and a Duke.

"But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ‘til the end.

"He has been a rock for Her Majesty The Queen with unparalleled devotion, by her side for 73 years of marriage.

"So, on that note, Grandpa, thank you for your service.

"Thank you for your dedication to Granny, and for always being yourself.

"You will be sorely missed, but always remembered—by the nation and the world.

"Meghan, Archie, and I, as well as your future great-granddaughter, will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.”
