Britain today enters eight days of mourning ahead of Prince Philip's expected funeral next Saturday, after The Queen announced with 'deep sorrow' the death of her husband at the age of 99.
Philip was her 'strength and guide' throughout their 73-year marriage and her 69-year reign, as crowds of mourners laying flowers and tributes at palaces became so large they were told to disperse because of the pandemic.
