I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved husband. I lost my husband of 10 years when we were both 28 years old. No matter how long you have spent together, this relationship shapes your life in many ways. Though I am Canadian, my father came from England in 1947. I have always felt close to the monarchy in my heart. My thoughts and prayers go with you.

We are very sorry for your loss. My dad was one of the first Gold Award recipients in Canada and was presented the honour by HRH Prince Philip on the Royal Yacht. My Nana, who is almost 94, recalls how thrilling it was to be aboard the yacht and see the Duke of Edinburgh. Keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Our family wishes to offer our deep condolences to her Majesty and the Royal family on the loss of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Although he might not have expected to devote his life to being a statesman, he not only took on the role, he made it his own. His intelligence and awareness embellished by kindness, charm and humor made him a wonderful partner for her Majesty. We are all richer for his life and contributions.

My family and I cannot imagine the depth of your sorrow at the sad passing of a life long companion, confidant, partner and husband. Let alone the loss to your family, the country, the military and all those throughout the world whose lives he enriched, through The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, or the enjoyment provided by an off the cuff observation, often keenly made, and always appreciated for it's humour. A unique spirit, a truly great man, irreplacable. Our sincerest condolences.

We have never known, in the lifetime of most Canadians, a time when Prince Philip was not a central figure in the British monarchy. It is hard to imagine him not being there. He was a model of public service in the Commonwealth. It is so nice to know that he and the Queen were supportive and loving life partners. He will be missed.
