In it, he hailed Philip as “master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ’til the end”.

“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.

“And while I could go on, I know that right now he would say to all of us, beer in hand, ‘Oh do get on with it!’”

Harry added: “Meghan, Archie and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.”
