The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson pays tribute to Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh” – below is their description.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, who passed away at the age of 99

In a statement the Prime Minister confirmed that he had spoken to Buckingham Palace who confirmed that His Royal Highness had passed away.

Mr Johnson said: “Prince Philip earned the affection of generations here in the United Kingdom, across the Commonwealth and around the world.

“He was the longest serving consort in history, one of the last surviving people in this country to have served in the second world war at Cape Matapan, where he was mentioned in despatches for bravery and in the invasion of Sicily, where he saved his ship by his quick thinking and from that conflict he took an ethic of service that he applied throughout the unprecedented changes of the post war era.”

Mr Johnson added that “like the expert carriage driver that he was he helped to steer the royal family and the monarchy so that it remains an institution indisputably vital to the balance and happiness of our national life”.

“So we mourn today with Her Majesty The Queen we offer our condolences to her and to all her family and we give thanks, as a nation and a Kingdom, for the extraordinary life and work of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” he said.
