Prince Harry, Meghan Markle say Prince Philip will be 'greatly missed' in subtle online tribute
Former U.K. Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage remembers the life of Prince Philip.
Although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have yet to issue a formal statement reacting Harry's grandfather's passing, the couple acknowledged the Duke of Edinburgh's legacy on their Archewell website.
"In Loving Memory of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021," the website now reads.
"Thank you for your service...You will be greatly missed," the message continues.

Philip's passing was confirmed by the palace in a statement shared Friday.
"It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle," the statement reads.
An announcement about the duke's death was placed on the gates of Buckingham Palace on Friday.
During England’s coronavirus lockdown, he had been staying at Windsor Castle, west of London, with the queen, 94.
On Feb. 16, Philip was admitted to a London hospital after feeling unwell. On March 3, he underwent a procedure for a pre-existing heart condition at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital before being transferred back to King Edward VII hospital on March 5 and ultimately released home on March 16.

Philip married then-Princess Elizabeth in 1947 and is the longest-serving royal consort in British history. He and the queen have four children, including Harry and his older brother, Prince William, eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
A former naval officer and keen polo player, Philip enjoyed robust health well into old age but had several health issues in recent years.
At the time of his death, Philip's full title was His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich, Knight of the Garter, Knight of the Thistle, Order of Merit, Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire, Companion of the Order of Australia, Companion of the Queen's Service Order, Privy Counselor.
He was the second person ever to bear the title "Duke of Edinburgh," the first being his great-great-uncle, Prince Alfred Ernest Albert. His son, Prince Edward, will now assume the title.
