“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.

“Further announcements will be made in due course.

“The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”

The Duke of Edinburgh’s health has been slowly deteriorating over the last few years.

In 2017, he announced he was stepping down from royal engagements and joked that he could no longer stand up.

Earlier this year, he was admitted to King Edward VII’s hospital in central London and later underwent a procedure for a pre-existing heart condition.

On 16 February, he was photographed arriving back at Windsor Castle.

The Royal Family released a statement at the time which read: “His Royal Highness wishes to thank all the medical staff who looked after him… and everyone who has sent their good wishes.”
