Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have responded to Prince Philip's death.

The couple posted a short tribute on the website of their media company Archewell on Friday.

"In loving memory of the Duke of Edinburgh, 1921-2021," the report reads.

"Thank you for your service. You will be greatly missed."

Prince Philip, Prince Harry's grandfather, died at the age of 99 on Friday morning.

The British prince was known as a crude man with a heart on his sleeve.

He was famous and notorious for his often painful and insulting statements.

The 2020 corona year was largely spent by Philip in isolation at Windsor Castle with his wife Queen Elizabeth II.

There the couple celebrated, among other things, Philip's 99th birthday.

At the beginning of January, the Queen and the Prince were given a corona vaccine.

At 99, Philip was the oldest male member of the British Royal Family ever.
