The Prince of Wales has released a touching new tribute to his "dear Papa", the Duke of Edinburgh, following his death on Friday.

The heartwarming video, which was shared on Clarence House's official Instagram page on Wednesday, showed a series of throwback pictures of the royal family from over the decades - including portraits from Prince Charles' childhood and outings at various horse shows.

Alongside the post, an extract from Prince Charles' recent broadcast was also shared. The message read: "My father, for I suppose the last 70 years, has given the most remarkable, devoted service to The Queen, to my family and to the country, but also to the whole of the Commonwealth… My dear Papa was a very special person."

The events will take place entirely within the confines of the Castle and members of the public are being urged not to travel to Windsor or other royal residences to pay their respects, but to watch the ceremony on television instead.

The Queen and members of her family will be present, although the list of attendees, which will be limited to 30 people due to current COVID restrictions, will not be announced until a couple of days before the funeral.
