Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla tear up at Prince Philip tribute
Charles, 72, and Camilla, 73, were seen observing the endless line of flowers, art, and personalized items and cards left by the public in memory of the Duke of Edinburgh. Duchess Camilla was photographed wiping away a tear during the sombre outing.
Understandably, Prince Charles also appeared emotional as he took in the tributes to his late father, who passed away at the age of 99 on April 9. In his first statement following the loss, Charles had called his father "a very special man."
On social media, Clarence House shared close-up pictures of the tributes, which included cards with handwritten messages about Prince Philip, envelopes addressed to The Queen, personalized artworks, and a model Land Rover labelled: "The Duke. RIP."
Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla's Thursday visit to the tributes at Marlborough House Gardens comes six days after Prince Philip's passing, which sadly coincided with their 16th wedding anniversary on April 9.
The Duke of Edinburgh's funeral will be held this Saturday, April 17, at St. George's Chapel in Windsor. It's now also been confirmed that family members will not wear military uniforms to the ceremony.
