Following the news of Prince Philip’s death today, aged 99, Londoners have taken to Twitter to express their sadness.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s passing follows a four-week stay in hospital earlier this year, during which he underwent heart surgery. In a statement released by the Palace, he’d been recovering at his home in Windsor, alongside Her Majesty the Queen.

In a statement shortly after noon, the palace said: ‘His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.’
