The Duke of Edinburgh’s eight grandchildren are mourning the loss of their “Grandpa”.
– Peter Phillips
The 43-year-old is the eldest son of the Princess Royal and was the duke’s first grandchild.
His summers were spent – like all of the duke’s close descendants – with the Queen and Philip at Balmoral, and onboard the Royal Yacht Britannia.
In 1991, a teenage Peter welcomed his grandparents on a tour of Port Regis school in Dorset, showing Philip a burglar alarm he made for a classroom project.
Mr Phillips, who announced his divorce from wife Autumn last year, runs the UK arm of events and sponsorship agency Sports and Entertainment Ltd (SEL), after a previous career working for RBS and in Hong Kong on a Williams Formula One sponsorship deal.
In 2016, his agency organised the Patron’s Lunch celebration in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday.
– Zara Tindall
The champion equestrian rider won a silver medal in the London 2012 Olympics with Team GB.
A firm favourite with her grandparents, she has often been pictured greeting the Queen and Philip warmly at official or family events.
The Princess Royal’s daughter gave birth weeks ago to her third child.
She named her son Lucas Philip, with his middle name in honour of both the duke and husband Mike Tindall’s father.
– The Duke of Cambridge
William described his grandfather as a “extraordinary man”.
He praised Philip’s “mischievous sense of humour”, adding: “I will miss my Grandpa, but I know he would want us to get on with the job.”
William also spent summers at Balmoral, enjoying the shooting, hunting and fishing, which was much loved by the duke, on the Aberdeenshire estate.
The future king said the Duke of Edinburgh’s presence helped him through “the hardest days”.
William has experienced a devastating rift with his brother the Duke of Sussex and the fallout from Megxit.
Princes William and Harry were also with the Queen and Philip at Balmoral when their mother Diana, Princess of Wales died suddenly in a car crash in 1997.
– The Duke of Sussex
Harry’s tribute to the duke summed him up as as “master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right till the end”.
He added: “I know that right now he would say to all of us, beer in hand, ‘Oh do get on with it’.”
It was a source of immense pride to Harry that he took over Philip’s role as Captain General of the Royal Marines, and of great sadness when the Queen removed the honorary position after he stepped down as a senior working royal.
He signed off his tribute to Philip with the Marines motto “Per Mare Per Terram”, which means “By Sea, By Land”.
– Princess Beatrice
Beatrice was delighted that Philip and the Queen made it to a secret lockdown for her wedding to property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi last summer.
The smiling duke was pictured – socially distanced from the bride and groom – in images released to mark the day.
As a child, Beatrice – the eldest daughter of the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York – sometimes travelled to church in the Queen and Philip’s car.
Beatrice, 32, has a full-time job at Afiniti, an artificial intelligence software firm, where she is vice president of partnerships and strategy.
– Princess Eugenie
Philip’s death came weeks after Eugenie, 31, became a first-time mother.
Her son August – who has the middle name Philip in tribute to his great-grandfather – was born in February.
The youngest daughter of the Duke of York works as a director at the contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth in London.
Her affection for both her grandparents has been evident over the years.
“They are the most incredibly supportive couple to each other… I think he is her rock, really, and she is his,” she said during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee festivities in 2012.
– Lady Louise Windsor
Seventeen-year-old Lady Louise has embraced the pastimes associated with her grandfather, taking up carriage driving and starting her Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award.
The teenager, who is studying for A-levels, attended church with her parents the Earl and Countess of Wessex on Sunday as they gave tributes honouring Philip.
Edward and Sophie decided that when Lady Louise was born, although she would just use Windsor, she should have the full surname Mountbatten-Windsor, which will have pleased her grandfather.
Philip was forbidden from using his family name Mountbatten for his own children when they were born, and is said to have exclaimed: “I’m just a bloody amoeba.”
Lady Louise arrived prematurely in November 2003, weighing just 4lb 9oz.
– Viscount Severn
Thirteen-year-old James is the youngest of the Queen and Philip’s grandchildren, and lives with his family in Bagshot Park, Surrey, 10 miles from Windsor Castle.
The Wessex children occasionally join their parents for official engagements including Trooping the Colour balcony appearances.
Last September, they collected rubbish on Southsea beach in Portsmouth to encourage others to do the same during the pandemic.
Mischievous James was seen prodding his sister on the back of her legs with a rubbish grabber.
