Today, Queen Elizabeth II announced "with deep sorrow" that her husband of 73 years Prince Philip "passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle." He was 99. 

Out of respect, Royal Family members have all changed their display and cover pictures on social media. The pages now show respectful coats of arms and monograms as well as a cover photo in memory of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Royal Family change profile pictures upon Prince Philip's death

On Twitter, pages for Kensington Palace, Clarence House, and the Royal Family now display an identical cover image. It's a black-and-white version of the 2015 photo of the Duke flashing a grin, seen below.

Prince Philip has died aged 99 (1921-2021).

For the display pictures, the royals all swapped out their usually upbeat portraits. Prince William and Duchess Kate changed their family photo to their personal royal monogram, with initials of W and C. Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla changed to the Prince of Wales's feathers. And the Royal Family's page now displays the royal coat of arms.

Thus far, the pages have shared the initial announcement of Prince Philip's passing, first announced by the Queen via the Royal Family's social media pages.

The sad news came just two months shy of the Duke's 100th birthday and less than one month after he was discharged from a four-week hospital stay that included a procedure on his heart. Our thoughts are with the royals at this time.
