    Duke of Edinburgh

    A statement issued by the palace just after midday spoke of the Queen's "deep sorrow" following his death at Windsor Castle on Friday morning.

    The Duke of Edinburgh, who was the longest-serving consort in British history, had returned to Windsor on 16 March after a month in hospital.

    In a statement following the announcement, Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis said his "deepest sympathies" went to the Queen and the Royal family.

    Mr Jarvis said: "Prince Philip gave his life to service – from a distinguished and courageous career in the Royal Navy, where he saw active duty from the Mediterranean to the Far East during World War II, to the long, constant, and vital support to the Queen after they married.

    “He provided her with love, companionship, and a private and family side to such a very public life. But he also gave a lifetime of dedication and service to the country himself."

    Prince Philip's work with the Duke of Edinburgh scheme "inspired many thousands of young people to push themselves and their limits", Mr Jarvis added.

    "Prince Philip was an important part of a national institution and a part of British public life for more than 70 years. As such he represented a powerful link to our past as a country and helped to shape it. His passing will be widely mourned."
