Prince Philip: The Queen says his death has 'left a huge void'

 


Prince Andrew said his father's death was a "terrible loss", and his family was "rallying round" to help the Queen.

"We've lost the grandfather of the nation," he added, as he left a service at Windsor.

Earlier, ex-PM Sir John Major said the Royal Family's shared grief was an "ideal opportunity" to mend any rifts.

And during a special service at Canterbury Cathedral, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby paid tribute to Prince Philip, saying that "for the Royal Family, as for every other, no words can reach into the depth of sorrow that goes into bereavement".

The archbishop, who is expected to lead the duke's funeral service at Windsor Castle on Saturday, said Prince Philip showed "a remarkable willingness to take the hand he was dealt in life and straightforwardly to follow its call, to search its meaning, to go out and on as sent to inquire and think, to trust and to pray".
