May his soul Rest In Peace. His life has certainly been a long, varied and very interesting one, including a marriage of nearly 73 years. The Queen and his family will certainly miss him very much. He’s been a constant presence in all their lives for so long.

Such sad news for the Queen and the whole family. His service to Britain during WW2 against the Nazis and then as consort to the Queen was truly remarkable.

I just saw the news, which was unexpected despite the Prince's age.

He lived a long and meaningful life, and now it was time to rest.

My condolences to the family and to the British people.
