Hundreds of flowers, which have been laid by mourners outside Buckingham Palace, have been moved to Marlborough House at St James’s Palace.

The Prince of Wales was pictured looking at the sincere tributes – which have flooded in from people across the country.

In an emotional statement over the weekend, Charles said he misses his father “enormously” and the Duke would be “so deeply touched” by the outpouring of grief.

He said: “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.”

It comes after Prince Charles praised his father’s “astonishing achievements” and Princess Anne said “life without him will be completely different”.

They joined senior members of the Firm, who spoke fondly of the beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather in broadcasts on Friday night.

Prince Philip’s first born son, Charles, told the BBC his father “didn’t suffer fools gladly” as he marvelled at what he accomplished by the Queen’s side for seven decades.

He said: “His energy was astonishing in supporting my mama, and doing it in such a long time.

“What he’s done, amounts to an astonishing achievement, I think.”

It comes after Buckingham Palace revealed that Philip’s funeral will be broadcast to the nation on TV next Saturday, with Charles leading a procession to the chapel at Windsor Castle.

Just after midday on Friday, the Union Flag was lowered to half-mast outside Buckingham Palace and on public buildings across the UK as the world mourns his death.

The Queen, 94, shared a poignant photo of Philip in a heartfelt tribute to her “strength and guide”.

The tragic news of his death is a huge blow to the Queen, with the Duke widely known to be the backbone of the Royal Family.

The royal passed away two months and one day short of what would have been his 100th birthday.
