Royal Family’s tribute to The Duke of Edinburgh across social media

The Royal Family has paid tribute to The Duke of Edinburgh across social media with a moving quote from Her Majesty The Queen on the occasion of her golden wedding anniversary.

In a tweet on the Royal Family’s official Twitter page, a picture of The Queen and Prince Philip was posted along with the words of Her Majesty, “He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know.”

In a second post moments later, another photo was shared of The Duke of Edinburgh with The Queen at her Coronation in 1953. The tweet reads, “The Duke of Edinburgh swore to be Her Majesty’s ‘liege man of life and limb.’ The Duke was a devoted consort (companion to the Sovereign) for almost 70 years, from Her Majesty’s accession in 1952 until his death.”

The Duke of Edinburgh died on Friday 9th April at Windsor Castle at the age of 99.
