Ahead of the sad but commemorative day, Queen Elizabeth II received a beautiful gift of a rose named in her late husband's memory.
On social media, the Royal Family shared photos of the Queen receiving the rose, along with a throwback of the monarch standing lovingly with Prince Philip.

Prince William and Duchess Kate also highlighted the Queen's special gift in their tribute to Prince Philip. They wrote: "Remembering His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, on what would have been his 100th birthday."

Princess Eugenie shared a somewhat more personal note for her late grandfather, writing on Instagram: "Thinking of Grandpa on what would have been his 100th birthday," with a photo of the Queen and her husband.
In an ITV interview today, Princess Anne added of her father: "We all have to move on, but it's important to remember."
