The Duke of Edinburgh died aged 99 in April at Windsor Castle and was the longest serving British royal consort. In response to a letter of condolence from a royal fan, William and Kate sent a thank you note explaining how they were “incredibly moved” by the messages they had received.

In the note, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge described how Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, four, missed their “much loved” great-grandfather.

Social media user Miss Royal Replies shared the note from the Cambridges on their Instagram page.

The post showed a typed note along with a photo of Prince Philip in uniform.

The letter reads: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thank you for your kind words following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.

“Their Royal Highnesses have been incredibly moved by the many thoughtful messages they have received in recent weeks.

“They will all miss their much loved grandfather and great-grandfather, but your message has provided great comfort at this difficult time.”

Earlier this month, Prince Charles also sent a royal fan a heartwarming photo of himself and Prince Philip.

The picture was shared in a card to people who sent the Prince of Wales a condolence letter after his father passed away.

The photo in Prince Charles’ card shows himself as a young boy with his father in a small speedboat which the Duke was driving.

The card read: “The Prince of Wales thanks you so much for your very kind message of sympathy.

According to the BBC, Prince Philip’s funeral was watched by more than 13 million TV viewers in the UK.
