Prince Philip: How the world reacted as tributes pour in for Duke

The death of the Duke of Edinburgh at the age of 99 has sent shockwaves around the world, with tributes for Prince Philip pouring in from leaders in every corner of the globe.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson thanked the Queen's husband for his "extraordinary life and work" in serving the UK as Britain's longest serving royal consort.

The PM said Philip would be remembered for his "steadfast support" of the Queen, as well as his awards scheme which "inspired" countless young people.

Mr Johnson's statement from Downing Street was followed by a flurry of tributes from political leaders, including the prime ministers of India, Israel and Australia.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh on their Archewell website, which features the words: “Thank you for your service…You will be greatly missed”.

The site has switched to a memorial page with a dark brown background.

Meanwhile US President Joe Biden highlighted the Duke of Edinburgh’s “decades of devoted public service”.

The US president said he and wife Jill were keeping the Queen and her family “in our hearts” as he led international tributes to Philip, who died at the age of 99 on Friday.

“Over the course of his 99-year life, he saw our world change dramatically and repeatedly. From his service during World War II, to his 73 years alongside the Queen, and his entire life in the public eye — Prince Philip gladly dedicated himself to the people of the UK, the Commonwealth, and to his family,” Mr Biden said in a statement.

“The impact of his decades of devoted public service is evident in the worthy causes he lifted up as patron, in the environmental efforts he championed, in the members of the armed forces that he supported, in the young people he inspired, and so much more.

“His legacy will live on not only through his family, but in all the charitable endeavours he shaped.”

Barack Obama recounted how he and wife Michelle were apprehensive of the “palaces and pomp” when they visited during his time as US president, but that the Queen and Philip put them “at ease with their grace and generosity”.

“Prince Philip in particular was kind and warm, with a sharp wit and unfailing good humour. It was our first introduction to the man behind the title, and in the years since, our admiration for him has only grown. We will miss him dearly,” Mr Obama added.

The royal families of Holland and Belgium also paid condolences to their British counterparts.
