Philip hailed as a truly great grandfathe­r

-

SENIOR members of the British royal family last night remembered Prince Philip as a much-loved husband, father, grandfathe­r and great-grandfathe­r.

Buckingham Palace issued this portrait, taken by Kate Middleton, of the Queen and Philip with seven of their ten greatgrand­children in 2018.

The Queen is holding Prince Louis, Prince William and Kate’s youngest child.

Next to her stands Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three. Behind her is Savannah Phillips, the elder daughter of Peter and Autumn Phillips. Her younger sister, Isla, is next to Philip, as she clutches her newborn cousin, Lena Tindall, the second daughter of Zara Phillips, whose little foot rests on the duke’s knee.

Lena’s big sister, Mia Tindall, leans against the sofa in a pink dress.
