Sad for the family and friends as it is for all of us when it happens. He had a privileged life for a long time - probably not easy but .... my father was born on 10 June and died on 4 March many years ago ... so some shared memories for me  .... It seems he had a life well lived ... we should be happy for that for him. I hope the UK holds steady on quarantine rules for those not in the country

Very, very sad news.  Even when someone is nearly 100 years old, had a long and eventful life, its still unexpected and sorrowful news to hear.
My condolences to the family.
RIP Prince Philip.

The Queen needs her family now. I wonder how this will be handled for her safety and what are the UK’s Covid rules this week? Will they be able to gather with her at Windsor? At the funeral?

Although not completely unexpected, it is still a shock. Somehow I had the feeling (stupid I know) that he and QEII would be there forever.
May he rest in peace and my sincere condolences for his family.

SGC is plenty large enough to have the core family (ie her and Philip’s descendants) all that the service and social distanced.  Last I checked the rules were up to 30 and they have 29(?) descendants and current spouses.  The kids won’t all be expected to attend and at least one spouse shouldn’t be doing long haul fights right now so space and number wise they should be good.

Frogmore is also spacious enough for them to all attend the burial...if the rumors of a Frogmore burial are correct.

What a sad day for Her Majesty.

I can't imagine how she will feel tomorrow to wake up and not have him around.

Farewell, Iron Duke.

I am also thinking about Charles and Camilla - their wedding anniversary will forever now be also the day that Charles will remember as the day his father died (16 years ago today they married at Windsor).

Phillip lived a long and rich life as a family man and public figure in support of the Queen and was pretty healthy and vibrant until the end.  I am greatly saddened for the Queen, losing her lifelong partner but unfortunately, life does march on. 💔

Condolences to the Queen and entire British Royal family and well as the nation.  

I was SO hoping he would have lived to see his 100th birthday - such a special number that not everyone can reach.

I've just been driving and stopped to check my phone and seen the news. I'm heartbroken. I really thought he would get to 100. Hell, I thought he would live forever.
My heart breaks for Elizabeth, for their family, for all who knew him.
Though the pandemic is hard, I'm glad that despite the stay in hospital, Elizabeth and Philip got to spend their last few months together at Windsor.
