"Take a look back at the life and work of The Duke of Edinburgh."

Moving music also plays over pictures of Philip in uniform, with the Queen's beloved corgis, and sharing jokes with other family members.
It follows Charles' tribute to his "dear papa" on Saturday.
In an emotional statement, he said he misses his father "enormously" and the Duke would be "so deeply touched" by the outpouring of grief.
"I particularly wanted to say that my father, for I suppose the last 70 years, has given the most remarkable, devoted service to The Queen, to my family and to the country, but also to the whole of the Commonwealth.
"As you can imagine, my family and I miss my father enormously.
"He was a much loved and appreciated figure and apart from anything else, I can imagine, he would be so deeply touched by the number of other people here and elsewhere around the world and the Commonwealth, who also I think, share our loss and our sorrow.
"My dear papa was a very special person who I think above all else would have been amazed by the reaction and the touching things that have been said about him and from that point of view we are, my family, deeply grateful for all that.
"It will sustain us in this particular loss and at this particularly sad time. Thank you."
Charles also praised his father's praised his father's "astonishing achievements", while Princess Anne said "life without him will be completely different".
The Princess Royal said: "In all sorts of ways [life would be different without him], in terms of within our family it's fundamental as without him it would be completely different.
"But I think also from society’s perspective – he's been able to keep pace with the kind of technological changes that have such an impact… but at the bottom of all that, it’s not about the technology it’s about the people."
Prince Edward added to ITV News: "He was always able to manage interviews and say things that the rest of always dreamed we could say. He was brilliant. Always absolutely brilliant.
"He had a wonderful sense of humour but of course you can always misinterpret something or turn it against them, so it sounds like its not right.
"But anyone who had the privilege to hear him speak said it was his humour which always came through and the twinkle in his eye."
Prince Harry paid tribute to "witty" Philip – remembering the duke as the "master of the barbecue and legend of banter".
Harry, who last night returned to the UK from his home in the US, said the Duke of Edinburgh was "cheeky 'til the end".
The Duke of Sussex, who is currently staying at Frogmore Cottage, said his grandfather had been "authentically himself" throughout his more than 70 years of service to the nation.
And he thanked the dedicated royal for being a "rock" to his grandmother the Queen – just minutes after his brother William also paid tribute.
The Duke of Cambridge today hailed "extraordinary" Philip – saying his children will miss their "mischievous" great-grandfather.
He shared a sweet photograph of his son George with Philip – snapped by Kate – thanking his grandfather for his "infectious sense of adventure".
In the emotional statement, William, 38, said he was thankful for Philip guiding him "good times and the hardest days".
