    I just saw the news.

    I thought he'd last forever. Don't know what to think.

    I feel pity for the man who saw disintegration in the family, it started with Diana getting a divorce and now Harry cutting ties with the monarchy.

    It's a shock, but it isn't a surprise if you understand what I mean. He was just always there, and now he's not. All my life, all my parents' lives, all my grandparents' lives. There was something reliable about that.

    I feel for the Queen, she's lost her sister, her mother, and now her husband. I hope she has a lot of support at this time.

    I shall admit, I thought that he would outlive me.

    A Second World War veteran, a diplomat, and the founder of the Duke of Edinburgh award, patron of 800 charities and renowned for plain speaking. A life well and truly lived, and a most notable individual. He is a loss to the country.
