Prince William and Kate Middleton sent a thank you note in response to a letter of condolences from a fan
Prince Philip is greatly missed by his family.
Prince William and Kate Middleton sent a thank you note in response to a letter of condolences saying their family — including their three children Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3 — missed their "much loved grandfather and great-grandfather."
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thank you for your kind words following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh," the letter reads. "Their Royal Highnesses have been incredibly moved by the many thoughtful messages they have received in recent weeks."
It continued, "They will all miss their much loved grandfather and great-grandfather, but your message has provided great comfort at this difficult time."
Following Prince Philip's death, Kate and Prince William shared a number of never-before-seen photos of Philip with their three children. First, accompanying Prince William's heartfelt tribute to his grandfather, was a sweet photo of Prince George sitting with his great-grandfather on a carriage.
