New Delhi: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, aka the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, paid tribute to Britain’s Prince Philip following his death on April 9.
Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh and the husband of Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully in the morning of April 9 at Windsor Castle, according to a statement released online by Buckingham Palace. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’ foundation Archewell paid tribute to Prince Philip.
The website- archewell.com was so updated that it just displayed a single message without any drop-down menus or links to other pages. A message in white read, ”In Loving Memory of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh, 1921-2021”.
”Thank you for your service… You will be greatly missed,” it added.
Prince Philip was married to Queen Elizabeth II for more than 70 years and had become the longest-serving consort in British history. He was admitted to the hospital on February 16, 2021, after he was diagnosed with an infection and a heart-related problem. Later he was discharged after a month.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex live in Los Angeles following their decision to quit frontline royal duties early last year. Prince Philip’s death has fueled speculation about whether Harry will return to Britain for his grandfather’s funeral and whether Meghan, pregnant with their second child, would join him.
They have yet to publicly say whether they will attend the funeral. If they do, this will mark their first return to Britain after their interview with chat show host Oprah Winfrey last month. In the explosive interview, Meghan revealed that revealed that when she was first pregnant with Archie, there were ‘concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born’.
The Duchess also opened up on the inside workings of the Royal family. She said she was so unhappy that she even considered suicide or self-harm after she asked for help but no one came forward to support her through the tough times.
