Death of Prince Philip: his son, Prince Charles, breaks the silence and announces his “huge loss”

The British royal family is in mourning. Two months before his hundredth birthday, Prince Philip died on Friday April 9, 2021. If Elizabeth II has not yet spoken publicly about the disappearance of her rock, Prince Charles wished to thank his people. On Saturday April 10, 2021, it was from outside his Highgrove home in Gloucestershire that the father of Princes William and Harry said: “I especially wanted to say that my father, over the past seventy years, has rendered the most remarkable and dedicated service to The Queen, to my family, to the country and to the entire Commonwealth. And as you can imagine, my father and my family are sorely missed. “

Facing reporters, Prince Charles continued: “He was a much loved and appreciated figure and apart from anything I can imagine he would be so deeply touched by the number of other people here and elsewhere in the world and in the Commonwealth who I also think share our loss and our grief. My dear daddy was a very special person, who I think above all else would have been amazed by the reaction and the touching things that were said to his subject. And from that perspective, we, my family and I, are deeply grateful for it all. ” In closing, the Prince of Wales added: “It will support us in this particular loss and at this particularly sad time. Thank you.”

“My dear Papa was a very special person …” Prince Charles made a short statement outside Highgrove House this afternoon to mark the passing of his father, the Duke of Edinburgh.
